Description

When I saw this material I had to buy it because I loved the colour. Didn’t know what to do with it for a long time but finally found the right pattern. In the instructions it called for satin stretch, mine is a jersey, so I figured this would work. Worked perfectly. Didn’t even use a zip. this is such a comfy dress, I just LOVE it !!

    Is it a Burda pattern from a couple of months ago? I’ve been planning to make this for my mom, but I haven’t found the right fabric yet.

    Great job! And thanks for the idea and showing the result using a jersey! Will probably do that too in a jersey! :)

      Did you double the jersey for lining as discribed? Did you do a lining at all?

      No, I was very lazy. And I figured wouldn’t need lining seeing that my jersey was fairly thick and non see through material.
