My best friend Aurelia had a birthday coming up and I had no clue what to get her as a gift. In many ways I got bored of the usual accessories, something for the house, chocolate, you know…the usual stuff every year. Then I realized damn! why not sew her something? I unleashed her on the BurdaStyle pattern store, she chose this dress then we had a nice Saturday afternoon out shopping for fabric.
She’s petite and the pattern is regular so I had to take 2cm off at the shoulders to get the bust and waist were they should be, I also shortened the skirt by 8 cm, but since i didn’t want to lose the godet look, I lifted that up by 4cm thus maintaining the shape and fashion of the dress.
Matching the lines was a challenge as usual, but it looks like I did OK there :) She’s happy with her new dress and that makes me happy.
