Praha, Czech Rep...






I made this dress to wear it during Christmas holidays, I thought it had such christmas colors… But now it’s spring time I fount it’s really comfy, the short sleeves and the thin fabric are right for this season! :)

I used an old Burda pattern, it’s the first time I don’t draft the pattern I need :) I fount it really easy, I made everything in only 3 hours! :D

Material Notes

Tartan cotton




Garment Type
Classic, Romantic


My boyfriend for taking the photos,

My cat for being so cute :)

    Wow! This is perfect. I have been looking for a simple dress that would work well in plaid/tartan, and this could be it! Any more clues as to which pattern it was? I’d love to try to track it down.

    Such a pretty dress. Really well made and the fabric is great. I’ve been looking for a pattern like this for quite a while now. Do you remember in which issue of Burda magazine you found this pattern?

    I like this, especially the neck line at the back.
