This is the Swing dress 08/2012 #133 from Burdastyle. I made it using a light blue wool jersey. The dress is not supposed to be sewn with stretchy fabrics, but I really liked the drape of the fabric and the fact that it would be warm and simultaneously not bulky. I treated the fabric as if it was a non-stretch fabric, lined it with cotton voile, so it wouldn´t scratch. To prevent the top from stretching out under the weight of the gathered skirt I added a waist stay. As decoration I added three buttons in a brooch-like formation :)
