I saw the dresses made by Alasse and i really wanted to have a go at making one like it. It’s from the burda pattern (7880) and i love it! I have no need for a dress like this so i think i’m going to wear it to do the house work.
It’s not quite finished as i ran out of lace and ribbon and i haven’t quite decided how i want it to close on the front (i think i’ll make a shirt of some kind and use the top as a jacket).
I have quite a bit of material left over so eventually i plan on making a couple of different tops to go with it.
The pics are a bit rubbish because i can’t figure out how to resize them :(
