Description

(First, sorry for my not perfect english ! ^^)

I wanted a Grease style dress, for a wedding this spring. But I wanted it to be real pink ! I found and loved immediatly this pattern, which fits perfect on me. It’s the #108 dress from the 3/2011 Burda. (Maybe I’m not clever but I’m not able to insert the pattern I used ! Help ?)

I made a 17 size.

I didn’t make it bubble cause I don’t like that, and I just added pockets, cause I can’t wear something without pockets !

Material Notes

pink cotton.

    Ta robe est superbe! Et cette couleur! Elle donne beaucoup de force à la forme simple de la robe. Parfaite pour la belle saison. Et tu as raison, la robe et beaucoup mieux sans la jupe boule. Bravo!

      Merci beaucoup pour ce joli compliment! Pour la couleur, j’avoue que j’ai eu un doute au moment de la coudre mais finalement j’en suis contente!
