Description

One of the most interesting outfits I ever made and, in fact, it was the first reason to sew the dress:-) The pattern is not for beginners but it is good practice and challenge to make it.
I had to make some changes in the processing of the dress because the sample in the magazine seems to be sewed not for summer and I wanted mine for hot weather both because of the pattern and because of the fabric.
To feel well-dressed on hot days is not usual but this dress surely gives such a feeling:-)
I surely recommend the pattern but with some changes. My tips for the sewing are here
The pattern #131 from Burda 10/2014 but I didn’t find it here in the pattern store.
The jewellery was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Rayon staple, the fabric should drape well.

    Very nice dress and great fabric! Sometimes Burda patterns are complex and sewing instructions are challenging which are not always bad… You certainly succeeded with this one!

      Thank you very much:-) I can’t but agree with all of your words:-) It not always happens when sewing itself is an enjoyment. But it is the very case :-)
