I made this dress a couple of months ago and it instantly became a favourite. I wanted to create a simple and versatile design that lasts more than one season, and I’m happy with the result! It’s perfect for autumn and winter with its long sleeves. When I don’t want to wear it just as it is, I either dress it down with a white shirt underneath, or I add som pearls and heels to wear it at more classy events.
I drafted the pattern myself, and made the covered buttoning in the back instead of a zipper. I think that’s a detail that makes this otherwise pretty simple dress look well made and neat.
