Burda 06/2013 #116 is a great, simple, stylish dress and great if you are short of fabric. I bought this metre of spotty linen a few weeks ago and it was just too lovely to resist making something straight away! Amazingly, I was able to get this dress, including facings to fit in the piece. The side panels are cut on the bias and this is one of the joys of this dress, in that you can mash it up as you please. It would also be lovely with some bias trim around the panels, or with contrast panels.
We decided to go for a picnic today. But spring has been rather unkind. Yes, there are bluebells but you can’t see the wind or feel the hailstones and 6.5*C that arrived later on. Still a great frock whatever the weather!
