For some time I wanted to sew shift dress from Burda 09/2012, no. 107.. I imagined it in a crazy and fun wool so I could wear it in winter.. Wool selection in our fabric stores is a bit dull and depressive.. In the end I found this gray wool fabric with blue and red stripes.. Normally I would place stripes to go horizontally, but the fabric is a bit elastic, so I left stripes vertically..

I’ve made a few changes to the pattern.. There was no need for sewing the zipper.. Neck opening in the back is V shaped, as in another variation of this pattern (no. 106).. I didn’t like that much patch pockets, so I made pockets in front darts.. I also narrowed the sleeves for a little bit.. The final length of the dress is probably few cm shorter..

The dress turned out very comfortable and easy to wear.. I like how it looks layered with sweaters and other winter accessories..

    I like very much this pattern and your version is awesome-the pockets at the front darts are a gorgeous detail!
