Description

Swing dress from Burda style 8/12 made from a light wool fabric.
I just love this pattern, the only alteration I made was to the skirt part, just made it a little shorter.

    This dress looks very nice on you. I especially like the capped sleeves – very cute. I bought some new fabric today and will definitely be using it to make this dress!
