Description

I was looking in my old Burda’s and found this pattern #111 from 11/2008. I had a bit left of this nice Jacquard with rose from another dress project and it was exactly enough for the upper part, so I had to find another fabric for the skirt. I have used a wrinkle cotton blend, but this was not good for pleats, so I decided to make gathering at the waist instead. It’s not X-mas yet, but red is always nice :)

Material Notes

Jacquard and wrinkle cotton blend.

    Looks very smart and elegant. I like the way the bodice fits and such skirts are ideal for you. And red is the queen’s colour indeed:-))

    It’s only Christmas if you add green to it :p I think red is a beautiful color and I like wearing it year round. The dress is really nice and looks light and summery :) Og så husket jeg at det var du jeg skriver til :) men det må holde med engelsk denne gangen da :D

    Nice interpretation of this pattern. The gathering instead of the pleats add something special to this dress. It is also a nice color;-))
