Added Jun 19, 2013
This playful dress is based on the short jumpsuit in the BurdaStyle May edition, but instead of shorts I added a skirt to the bodice.
As the original pattern is designed for shorties, a few adjustment were needed: I choose size 19 and changed the darts and the length of the bodice. For the bottom part I used an A-line skirt pattern and adapted it to fit the top part. I left out the side pockets as I do not particularly like those and added a pocket on one of the front panels of the skirt.
The instructions were easy to follow and I found no fault with the pattern.
