The dress is based on Vintage Boucle Dress – however I used a very thin, vie colour fabric.
I have not altered the shape at all, however I am thinking about taking the dress in a little bit. It does look pretty large, despite going for a smaller size!
I prefer the length as it is, I know there is a temptation to shorten it, however it loses a bit of its elegance.
I chose a plain, beige button because I wanted to keep the lines simple.
The dress is worn with Rupert Sanderson nude shoes, as featured in Burda magazine (August 2011).
I will definitely make another dress following this pattern, however I will go for a smaller size and a much thicker fabric (in fact, as recommended)
