Started more than five years ago and finished a few days ago for a wedding, I was happy to finally wear that dress.
I used the bolero pattern “Comme un coquelicot” by mixtlii on BurdaStyle, and decided that I could spiced it up a bit. Wrong !!!
I spent too many hours sewing the whole thing, but wore it proudly (and stiffly) the whole day.
