Benesov, Czech R...
My black dress is finished and I´m so glad. It was not very easy to make it and took me quite a lot of time. It´s a combination of two older Burda Mag patterns. For the bodice, I left the zipper out and added straps, because I wanted to have a bow in the back. I made pockets too! They are my first pockets and I didn´t really know how to make them and whether I did it right (probably not :). It was a strange process making this dress: I said to myself many, many times, that I hate sewing and that I´m not ever sewing again. There were just so many steps for this to be finished, and I didn´t even know how will it look like in the end. Anyway, the fabric is really lovely, and was a dream to work with, so I forgive the dress everything :) Now I just need somewhere to wear it…
