Description

I made this dress especially to wear on the last day of Me Made May 2014 challenge. It was a very easy and fast project to make, I have done it in three hours.
For the fabric I used the left-over fabric from my previous top, it’s kind of printed knit cotton.
For the pattern, I used my TNT pattern – Burdastyle Satin Dress 04/2013 size 36, I made the neckline a little bit higher, omitted the pockets and make my own elastic belt :)

      Thank you :) Yes, I sewn it in three hours but I had the pattern already traced for so long. It’s one of my TNT pattern.
