My second handmade dress for the year. This one is dress 109 from issue 6/2010 of Burda Style magazine. The pattern asked for a jersey material, but being a rebel that I am, I opted for cotton instead. (As a novice sewer, I’m just too scare to use a stretch material!) I was really concerned as I was making it thinking the dress will be too tight with a non-stretchy fabric, but it turned out quite alright, it was super quick to make and everything seems to fit perfectly. YAY!
I’m not sure whether you can see the pattern on the dress, it is made of rows and rows of jams. How cute is that? I love patterns where you can’t really tell what is it until you look at it close up. Now I’ll just have to make some jam while wearing the dress.
