Bright Walk

A wrap-dress in empire style from Burda magazine 5/2009 #123 ( by the way as for me, it’s one of the best summer issues, I made 5 items from it and am planning a couple more). I like wraps, coupons, bright colours and the fabric that is so soft and pleasant for a body – so this pattern seems to be a good choice!

I lengthened the dress and omitted the ruffles along the neckhole and the bottom of the skirt.

The dress was made last summer but I only wore it two weeks ago first time during my vocation; to display my work I just used the pictures from my trip – it seemed to be funny to show how the dress works in real life:) And it turned out that the outfit is really good for walks on hot summer days: it is loose, has just the slightest fitting, made of a light fabric and makes you feel comfortable and womanish.

Material Notes

I’m confused a little to identify the fabric, I’m only sure that it has cotton and rayon fibres and it rumples not much so contains some persentage of synthetic but tiny. I’d rather say it’s shirting but very thin and soft or maybe staple.
