This is a compination of three patterns: Open Back Dress 03/2013 for the sleeves, 3/2011 Short Dress with Bubble Skirt for the bodice and model 107 from Burda 11/2007 for the skirt. I cut the sleeves on the fold at the hem to give them a clean finish and I made pleats instead of gathers. Beleive it or not it’s the first time I sew something with polka dots for me and I liked it very much.
