A light, airy, bright dress. Made by the pattern from Burda magazine 6/2008, #120. As it’s made of coupon fabric, I had to cut the pattern under the line of the breast to use coupon for upper part. I also made the dress longer; firstly, because the dress is loose enough so if it is short, it will look like a tent, and, secondly, to use specifity of coupon fabric again. Besides I omitted belt lops along the front folds’ seams: I am not able to wear a belt when it’s +38C outside:)
Coupon cambric, it is the best choice for the hottest summer and I guess looks nice ( and I like poppies:)). The hat is made by myself, too.
