This dress is easy to sew, I love the fabric : blue and white, and the look for the summer. Pattern from Couture facile E971 Burda (Robe-tunique n°10 B)
The design E971 from magazine “Sewing made easy” issue 1/2008. I shortened the length as tunic and added an elastic inside the hem.
I really wasn’t happy with this dress.

I took the patterns from the site Burda Fashion and I transformed a tunic into a blouse. I didn’t put elastic on the sleeves.
Made a fabric flower (hints from Burda Style’s how tos). It is my second project.
