This is my version of Pollini dress.
I admire ale.b for making this great pattern.
I lengthened it for 20 cm, since I intend to wear it to work.
I lengthened the bodice for 2 cm, but I don’t think that was necessary.

Material Notes

I used jersey, so I didn’t need a zipper. The material is a bit too soft and heavy to achieve the same look as ale.b’s creation, but I still like the result.

    I really like it. I have some jersey I was going to make a wrap dress out of but I think it would work for this too.

    It’s beautiful! I love your choice of the fabric, it make the dress look soft and elegant. I have been thinking jerseys as well, and now I am very happy to see a great example here.
