I called this dress Scarlet O’Hara not because of style (what is obvious I think), but because I made it out of curtain. If you don’t know what I mean, you should read “Gone with the wind” :)
I used 113 pattern from 8/2009 Burda Magazine with some (unexpected in the beginning) alternations. I didn’t add a zipper (in fact I added it and removed it later), made both parts shorter and changed sleeves shape a little bit.
And after something about 4 months is ready!
