Berlin : ), Germany
I liked the bib of chri_stine’s “Wendy Dress”, so I decided to make something similar. It took a very long time to finish it, because I had no idea how the rest of the dress should look like and I had no pattern, that’s why I had to do lots of changes (add darts at the front and the back, what kind of sleaves, lining, etc.).
At least I think it looks a little bit “retro” (the fabric could be from the 70’s and it’s a bit rough-textured, it lay in my mothers fabric-closet (she has a lots of fabrics she can’t use anymore, she got the most of it from our neighbour Mathilda once, that’s why the name ;-) ) for many years), but I like it that way.
