Easy Summer Dress ☼

I love this combination of pink and red stripes, and decided to make a summer dress. The pattern is from Burda 07.2008, but it’s very nice and easy to make. I have used a curtain-ring for the gathering in front and hand stitched it in place. Cecilie enjoyed the dress on holiday :)

    The song “All you need is Love” is very easy to paraphrase “All you need is such wonderful dress” when you have a good figure and go to the sea vacation:-)
