Added May 4, 2012
I made this dress last year and I have worn it quite a lot, but did not get around to make a photo of it until it documented it yesterday for Me-Made-May’12.
I wanted to have a light and comfortable dress for traveling when I went to Japan last year. It didn’t get finished in time, but it would have been too cold for it anyway.
I used the fashionline patten no. 508C from the german Burda site, but made some changes. I shortened the sleeves and made the sleeve hems gathered instead of pleated. I also added darts in the back for some more shaping.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
