The pattern is from Burda Magazine September 2010. As you can see the pattern is the same I used for my red suede skirt, wich I uploaded weeks ago.
The pattern is a delight to work with! I was surprise how easy and fast it could be finished. I could accomplished this project in a couple of hours.
The fit is just perfect, but I think pictures doesnt make any justice, is much better in person.
I though I have to lock this dress till spring but today was a warm and sunny day so I decided to wear it for the first time, cause it has been finished for 10 days and I was dying for trying it on. I wore it with silver-pewter accesoires. The temperature was unexpected high so I have to change my boots for a pair of heels. Then I realized this dress is so versatile and can be worn as you prefer.
Even though I am not into pastels, I wanted to make it in the same original color as shown in Burda, but for sure I will make it again using a vibrant color. It is soooo comfortable
