I’ve made this dress based on a Burda Style magazine’s pattern. I loved the original pattern for a long dress with sleeves and I tried a short version without sleeves.
The fabric was really cheaper, only 1€ per metre, so I wasn’t afraid of ruinning the dress. I add a bit of lace on the necklace for made the dress less showing. ;)
I think it’s a lovely pattern and very comfortable. I’m really happy with the results and maybe I’ll try the long version with an expensive fabric for a wedding or another special occasion.
