Description

I simply fell in love with the dress on the cover of BurdaStyle (08/12). Their mint version with its cap sleeves and emphasized waist is just wonderful!

As I have far too many dresses and too less occasions to wear them I opted to make a shorter blouse version of it. I love it and the octopi/octopuses make it especially fun to wear.

    So playful, with the print and volume of the gathers below the waist. I love it!
