This dress is Burda Dress with knot front from the March issue. I really like the result, it has a 60’s vibe that makes it an easy to wear and fun dress for the summer.
The fabric is a light blue and yellow stripped linen-cotton blend.

    I agree with ThreadTheory. The dress is gorgeous, but the shoes are to die for! Great combo.

      With the tutorial, it’s not so difficult. You could try only the knot in muslin first?
