    Very nice dress, makes young summer lovely look! Lengthened shoulders instead of sleeveless armholes are always good choice and the coupons are my all times favourites:) Classic dress, always modern and fashionable!

    I love your dress, you look very cute! The print at the bottom is gorgeous! I love the cap sleeves as well, they are adorable! It’s such a pleasute to use a very old pattern, and you just reminded me of a similar 20 years old, high waisted and cap sleeved pattern that I want to sew!

      Thank you very much for the nice compliments Liliv! I love to look in my old magazine, and my sister bought me a Burda from 1970 on the marked. It would be fun to try some of the patterns :)
