Brooklyn, New Yo...
This is my first Burda Style pattern (actually, from Burda magazine). I love how the gathered back of the blouse looks with the fitted skirt.
I ended up altering the neckline, however, removing the Peter Pan collar. I like the original collar, but I felt it might be too much with the graphic West African fabric I used.
Overall, I really like the dress, and would like to make another, perhaps with a more subdued pattern. I’ve got more details on my blog Daughter Fish
