My “Sarajevo meets Honolulu Dress”… ;-) I found this fabulous printed silk in a little store in downtown Sarajevo in April for a fifth of the price it would have cost here in Austria, and knew I wanted something fluttery and summery made out of it. So this was the result, and I finished it just in time for a dear friend’s wedding. 100 % silk, a heck of a lot of handsewing and a few cursewords went into the production, but it was definitely worth it!
Hm, I can’t figure out how to add this, but the pattern is from BurdaStyle magazine 06/2010, dress pattern no. 12. On this site it is called 6/2010 Drap Dress #126.
