Here is one simple, but special dress.. The fabric was a gift from Mokosha .. It was sitting in her stash for a long time, and she didn’t know what to do with it.. The fabric was too dark for her taste and she thought that I might like it.. Lucky me :) I loved the fabric at first glance.. It’s hard to see at only one look all the elements someone doodled for this design.. There are dark hair girl and her eyelashes, a tree, butterflies, roses, stripes, faces, hands.. True example of horror vacui on the fabric.. Only problem was length of the fabric – only 1 m!! The fabric is some kind of viscose.. I wanted to make a dress for autumn.. Pattern #133 from Burda 12/2012 proved to be the best choice for busy prints.. It was my fourth time that I’ve used it (1 , 2 , 3).. One half of 1 m fabric I saved for the skirt, and from the other half I made the bodice and the sleeves.. There was not enough fabric for long sleeves, but I didn’t want to leave them as ½ sleeves.. I added pieces of about 15 cm to the sleeves so now they are covering my elbows.. Thanks to busy print, that seam is barely visible.. The skirt is just a gathered rectangle..
