Description

It’s been a long time i wanted to have a light dress “underwear” style to wear with big vest & boots. I chose the pattern N°114 from the Burda 09/2013, cut in a polyester net fabric from st pierre (not easy the biais cut with this light fabric)
Due to the transparency of the fabric, i made it double adding lengths & adding a black nylon lining
I added a big knot on the low neck, unfortunately hides the gathers from the pattern and i cut some flounces for the straps. the problem is it’s getting creased very easily under the vest
Fluid & feminine, it is very comfortable to wear
