As soon as I saw the fabric, it was clear I wouldn’t leave the store without it:-) So bought as little as could not to be restricted in the choosing the pattern. I had two patterns to make from knits but as this fabric is pretty light and thin, I chose Simplicity 1653 from Diana Modern 4-5/2014 (Ukrainian edition). The dress has widening to the bottom skirt, my favourite wrap and a draping detail. The changes concern the sizing and processing of the neck hole and sewing the straps – you can see all of them here.
I like the motif of butterflies very much so made a nice matching necklace to complete the image.
