Description

Pattern is from Burda Easy Fashion Summer 2009. It was easy to sew, and I love it ! The folds on the skirt and on the top make the dress very special. The original pattern had a petticoat, but I didn’t make it, I thought it would be “too much” to wear it everyday. And I added the belt – an old tight !

I wore this dress when I visited my grandparents I hadn’t seen in so long, and they loved it :D
