Description

This is the dress on the cover of Burda 11/12.

I love this fabric which I found in Spotlight and with the 40 degree heat needed a cool dress that wasn’t to tight and easy to get on and off to go for a swim.

I like the ruffles on this one and didn’t have anything like it. Here it is. I made a couple of basic changes, details on the blog if you’re interested.

Nice and quick and easy to make.
