Ocean in a dress

Hi everyone,

This is my new dress made out of stretch cotton (great material to work with). Perfect for the summer holidays. I wanted to make this model for 4 years and finally I did it.

I used pattern 107, Burda 3/2009. I had to do small changes on the model, so I don’t destroy the pattern. I turned the princess seams into darts.

      Thank you! I bought the fabric on a special fabric market (stoffenbeurs) in Rotterdam, in April. I talk about it more in my blog, if you are interested.
