Description

I’m a sucker for drapey, chiffon garments. Sewing with them requires a lot of patience and skill, which I seem determined to master. This dress will go down as one of my favorites. Men and women compliment me on this dress. It is so versatile, easy to wear and a beautiful traveling piece. I have even paired it with a classic black blazer for a more professional look. This is a pattern from the BURDA book at fabric stores in the U.S. You can find the pattern here: http://www.simplicity.com/p-7309-burda-style-dress-t-shirt.aspx
