Algeciras, Spain






This is Burda 09/2012 #107 or 109.
Love the long bust darts, and the shoulder closures in a dart. My first time ever for those. I really enjoyed sewing up this beauty!
The only change I made was the pockets. I made them in-seam
No zipper.

    Well done, suites you well. I especially like how you have put on the shiny orange band. What kind of band did you use ?

      Hello! Yes, quite stretchy actually. That´s why I didn´t add the zipper. Otherwise it should have need it. This dress is more fitted than it appears to be.
