Royal Copenhagen Dress

Added Nov 4, 2016

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I bought this lovely fabric in Copenhagen, and it reminds me of the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain :) It’s a soft cotton/viscose fabric and I thought it would be nice for this dress pattern.
I omitted the sleeves since I wanted to wear it on my holiday. The waist is tight, and I like the fluffy skirt. The tie at the neck is a great detail and I think it looks nice even as a collar :)

    The fabric is very beautiful and I agree with the Porcelain comparison. Your image here is very elegant and fragile (exactly like a porcelain statue:-))

    Now that you’ve sewn all nice summer dresses, you’ve started cutting the sleeves from the winter patterns!!! The dress is beautiful as always!!!
