Description

On the 30th of May, I had some cocktail to go there and I didn’t know what to where. So, with anticipation, I made this dress taking into account that after, I would have to go and dance tango, so the skirt had to be quite large.
I just made one change on the Burda original cut: the pleats in the back are not apparent.

Material Notes

The violet fabric is a mix between cotton and viscose, I suppose, because it’s not too heavy. The waist belt is made of a blue lace on a white cotton fabric.
