vintage burda dress
that i made to wear at my friend’s wedding yesterday
favorite thing i made to date
and i made a lot of stuff
this dress almost never happened:
first i cut front bodice lining instead of front bodice
and used all of my fabric before realizing it
and was so pissed, that i almost give up
but in the end, i like this more fitted look better than original one
so it was a lucky accident
then i accidentally cut back of the skirt in half
dunno why, dress has in seam zipper at the left side
and now i have that back seam for no reason
also, fabric was slightly off grain while i was cutting skirt pieces
so skirt pieces looked croocked
i fixed that, but as a result
skirt is a bit too tight at the hips
but i can live with that
see more pictures on my blog mokosha
rayon fabric, 1,7m
a bit of cotton for bodice lining
60cm in seam zipper
