Description

I had this fun fabric in my stash and at first I thought about sewing a top, but when I saw this chic panel dress it was definitely this I wanted to make! This dress is based on pattern #3 Burda Easy 04/2013.
I made a similar dress earlier this summer: www.burdastyle.com/projects/comics-in-rome
I have use this fabric together with a medium weight jersey fabric, and I think this was a good choice since there was not any lycra in the other fabric. I finished this project an hour before getting to the party – so I made it :-)

    Oh, really excellent! I love the print, the bracelet, the boots, the whole styling is superb! And, of course, the dress was made perfectly!

      Yeah, you’re right Liliv – this one fits better and I like this style much more than the other one. That one was much looser..
