♫ ♪ Collapse In Slow Motion

The fabric I used for this dress is find from my visit to the Turkish market in Berlin with Anne .. I bought only 1m of it, with the idea to make a simple shift dress.. I fell in love with this paisley print cotton.. I couldn’t make a plain shift dress.. I had to ad an interesting detail to simple silhouette.. Only thing that came to my mind was some kind of an open back.. I looked around the web for inspiration and in the end came up with design that you see.. The pattern for this dress is #109 from Burda 04/2013.. I changed the back completely.. It was easy to hand draft..

I managed to make this dress completely from only 1m of the fabric that I had.. There was a smaller fit problem, I had to take it in around the bust and waist.. Also, it would be smarter if I added waist darts at front and at the back of the dress.. Anyways, I’m really happy with the outcome.. At one point I was afraid that I ruined this lovely fabric (I didn’t make a muslin), but in the end everything turned out great..
