Description

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.

    Very girlish, romantic and, besides, purple adds some mysterious note to the dress. It attracts much attention, no doubt!

    What a cute and girly and great dress. Excellent fit. Your skill of combining different patterns is just great; I am far too lazy for that. Great job.

    Very nice indeed. Excellent fit. I’m also curious about how many dresses you have. I don’t have any. I’m always in shorts and tops. Love the way you combine different patterns. Great job.

      They are really great, for some mysterious reason I didn’t like them but now I changed my mind and I LOVE them. I have many dresses that’s true and I have made almost all of them on my own…some day I must count them :) How many dresses do you own ronnielee??? :)
