This is the dress that I made for my sister’s birthday party.. In my fabric stash one special fabric was waiting to be made into a cute dress.. All I needed was to find the pattern that would complement this lovely cotton print that I bought on Turkish market in Berlin.. When I saw this fabric I immediately fell in love with color palette and this kind of doodle print.. I estimated well that 1.5 m would be enough to sew a dress..

I didn’t have much time for sewing the dress.. Actually, I made it on the day of my sister’s party.. All I needed was a simple, but interesting bodice that would go nicely with a full circle skirt.. The fabric is a bit stiffer and gathered skirt wouldn’t look good with it.. That’s why I wanted to make a full circle skirt.. The pattern that I used for the bodice is #116 from Burda 10/2010.. Cap sleeves are cute, but this time I decided to make a sleeveless dress.. It looked easier that way, and faster.. Only the bodice is lined.. The skirt is cut from one piece of fabric and has only one seam at the back.. Better excuse for not making the pockets instead of usual laziness..
