I wanted a simple shirtdress with some special twists and took pattern #124 of the burdastyle magazin 03/2010, but with the alteration to make a dress out of the blouse (how you can see by “janul”). I used a navyblue cotton with a lot of stitched flowers. Because of the stitchery in combination with the pleats it was hard work for my sewing-machine, that usually works so well. But in the end I’m very happy with the result.
