Description

I have given myself a year long sewing challenge and one of my projects was to make a LBD. I really love the dress from last July’s BurdaStyle magazine, and so I decided to use that pattern for my challenge. I really love the results! You can read more about my dress on my blog

Material Notes

I used a stretch cotton sateen for the outside and bemburg rayon lining.
