This is a two piece dress (blouse and skirt) made of smooth jersey fabric in a rich mustard color. For the blouse I used the pattern 111 from burda issue 09/2010 , which is the sleeved version of the model 110. I linked my project to the 110 because the sleeved 111 doesn’ t exist here as a pattern:)
I also drafted myself a simple skirt. It was a very easy project, but i don’t think that is flattering for my bodytype… all this drape in the front and the wide shoulders are more suitable for busty women. I have made this outfit 2 years now and I never wore it, except a few times that I wore the top alone. Plus I don’t think that the color looks good on me:(
