This project is based on pattern 111B of the 05/2011 Burda magazine.
The dress is mostly characterized by its broad cut and its V-neck at the back.
About the fabric: The recommended fabric to use is a crepe fabric. Here I used silk crepe even if that was not my first choice. I knew that silk crepe could be good for the project, however the 28 euros/meter scarred me away.
About the realization: Simple . The fabric gave me a little stress, as silk can be particular to handle.
