Description

I made this dress last summer and it completely amazed me how much wear I’ve had out of it. It’s definitely one of my favourite dresses, it’s a great fit and that style just so happens to be in this year a lot. Who would have known…

Part of it is definitely the material, because I love dark colours and it’s pretty without being sickly sweet. It was an old dress of my mum’s but she didn’t want it anymore so I chopped it up! It’s been quite versatile too, I wore it at Christmas with a red cardigan and red earrings, but also to work with a black cardigan and black shoes. I’m looking forward to seeing if I can get away with wearing it in Autumn with boots and black tights… We’ll see…

The pattern is from an old Burda magazine of my mum’s from 1981, only a couple of years after this one

Material Notes

Polyester (my guess), and satin ribbon for the band. The ribbon came as a belt on a top I have, but I think it looks nicer with my dress.
