I ordered this fabric forever ago to make coasters as a gift, but the print was too big for that so it went into the stash. This month’s burda had sooooo many things I want to attempt. I decided to begin with 4/2013 #126. It is made with eyelet in mag, but I thought it was a fun shift shape as a dress. and I thought it would be the perfect way to showcase this fun print. I didn’t have enough for the ruffles on sleeves and hem as in mag, so I bought this crocheted lacey trim/edging. I think it works! The pattern is very simple and comes together fast.
This was my first time with “set in” sleeves. And I must admit I sewed it in wrong side out and had to make nice with my seam ripper and go again… but other than that this went GREAT!
