The Burda-pattern was perfect for this fabric. The old curtain falls heavily, so the pleated skirt is perfect for the retro-styled dress.
Only old fabrics: The print was an old 50´s curtain in my aunts´ home, the handwoven linen in the waist is more then 100 years old. The bias is cut out of an old pillow with the monogram of my great-grandmother.
But the thread is new ;-)
