Piqué dress with stripes

Nedre Vats, Norway






I like very simle dresses – so this is one I had to try sewing. I found the pattern in Burda Spesial 02/1991, so even if it’s an old pattern I think it’s still modern – I like to believe that :) I’ve had this fabric for a long time and when I bought it, it was to sew piqu T-shirts for my boys.. anyway I like the dress very much and it’s comfortable to wear.

Material Notes

Cotton piqu




Spring, Summer

    Such patterns are always in fashion and when looking at you, nobody ever suspects it’s from an old issue:) The fabric is the best choice for such a model and the colourstyle is very nice. By all the aspects it is your style – you look young and beautiful!!!
