Description

I haven’t sewn a long/midi dress since a long time – but this one was so appealing. I like the high waist, the 2- tier skirt and the row of small buttons at the bust. First I was tempted to sew the shirt (I may still make it, love this pattern!) but the long skirt won… For the sleeve the fit wasn’t to my taste so I lengthened them by 1 inch and inserted an elastic. I prefer them this way.
I didn’t make the large belt as I don’t think this dress needs it and … I didn’t have enough fabric ;-)

      Thank you lomarilou. What’s great with this pattern is that you can make it as a long, midi, or short dress :-)
