Emerald dress for a spring wedding

Finally I’ve found time to write about this emerald silk dress I sewed back in March for my sister’s wedding. My 16 weeks bump was not very evident but still required more space, so this pattern from Burda 3/2012 was the perfect choice for a spring wedding. The only alteration was to draw an uneven line (there’s a 10 cm difference between the front and back parts) and add a ruffle to the bottom of the dress. The dress is completele lined. The fabric is a gorgeous pure silk produced in India on hand looms and coloured with natural dyes. My blog
