1 / 105

The model of this dress from BurdaStyle 11/2016 was simply irresistible in red. But I had this silk chiffon in silvery grey with a vibrant watercolor print and last month it was finally put to good use.

The model of the dress was somewhat new to me: it was the first time I made raglan shoulder line in a fine material and went for lots of horizontal pleats on the waist line. But it was fun to try new things and the dress turned out exactly how I wanted it to be: light and feminine.

As to the technical aspects of making the dress, I used the biased satin ribbon instead of facing for its neckline. Instead of zigzag stitching, I finished the hem of the dress with the “baby hem” technique. Also, due to the lightness of fabric, I wear the dress with the fond de robe that I made for my Boho Autumn Dress.
