Description

I have never sewn in my entire life. A spontaneous visit to a fabric store, first burdastyle pattern and …
Voila!

I used the spring/summer 2016 empire silhouette pattern. I adjusted the bodice and added short sleeves.

The dress is very simple and sweet, it reminded me of something ethnic and therefore a shepherd style image was born. Very appropriate for our funky mountain town.

      Thank you! The fabric print did take me in somewhat magical/ethnic direction :)
