Description

I made this Heidi with a small length of vintage cotton from Liberty. This is my first Heidi and I made it too big so to make it a little smaller I added six pin tucks along the centre front. I’m really happy with how the pin tucks turned out and I think it suits the style of the dress so I think I’ll include them again on my next Heidi. This pattern was really easy to follow. I unfortunately didn’t have enough fabric to make the matching belt. Thanks Burdastyle for a great pattern.

    I love this- even though you have used vintage fabric, your dress looks really modern.

    the pintucks work really well! did you have to add extra pleating to the skirt part also? because it looks greta like that ;)

    did you make it 1 size bigger or more?
