This dress always reminds me of spring.. I bought more than 2m of lightweight cotton fabric not knowing what I’ll do with it.. When I saw the dress in Burda 04/2011, no. 107 , I remembered that I have a similar fabric with tiny flower print, perfect for making that dress.. It’s a kind of a button down shirt dress.. In the store I found these cute heart shaped buttons, but only 8 of them, which was enough for bodice.. On skirt the buttons are hidden, so I sewed simple white ones.. The fit of the dress is very loose, even for my taste.. That’s why I added at the waist, in side seams, two straps which I tie at back.. Also, I managed to make skirt too short.. Embroidered cotton eyelet trim have saved the dress..

    Wow! Your dress is fantastic! Has such a “Jane Austen” feeling..

    In Berlin, we have a stand at the turkish market where they sell fabrics with patterns like this – I just love them! Thanks for inspiration!!

      Thank you very much!! :D my first impression for the dress was that I look like a character from Sarah Kay’s illustrations :)
      Lucky you with turkish market :) We don’t have anything similar here (that I’m aware of).. This fabric was find from the remnant box and I’m glad I bought it and made this dress :)
