Seems to Be Simple

Nice dress, nice pattern and fitting but much more work than it supposed to be from the first sight. The result justifies all the efforts though.
I chose this modification because of the skirt shape, it gives such airiness to the model! As the fitting is pretty tight so this latter fact is important:-)
I still have no chance to wear the outfit but the weather will change some day anyway.
My tips for sewing are here
The earrings were made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Very thin stretch denim.

    Gorgeous dress, love this pattern (just added to my favorite, waiting for a sale ;-). Again you chose the perfect fabric/color, and the fit is amazing. I went to your blog to see the detail of the earrings – fantastic!

      Thank you very much:-) When sewing so tightly fitting outfits, I always suppose they will need a lot of correction after trying them on. But surprisingly this one fitted perfectly at once. Only my usual shortening in the top of the back was necessary as my back’s length is shorter than in Burda’s patterns.
      What choosing the pattern for the earrings, I thought they would match the dress because of its big decollete.

      Thank you very much:-)) Actually it is seeming simplicity, the fitting is great because of many details of the bodice but the dress is very worthy to do :-)

    You look amazing! Love the fit, love the flounce, love the neckline! I made this model in a black version for winter and and a white for spring. It’s simple but very flattering!

      Thank you very much:-) While sewing I couldn’t call the dress simple but probably all those details provides its great fitting indeed. I am sure the version in any colour looks beautiful and feminine.

      Thank you very much, Mary:-) The dress is that occasion when it needs no extra trying on and fixing to fit. I surely recommend it.
