Description

This dress was a challenge for me since I didn’t read the instruction properly.., but I liked to sew it :)
I had to use a plain color together with my fancy colorful jersey, and the dress was perfect for my holiday :-)

    Hi Ellen,

    As always it’s a pleasure to see your version of a pattern! I love the combination of the plain and patterned tricots! One question: can one wear a bra below this dress or does it imply one goes “bra-less”?

      Thanks for your lovely compliment Klotto! You can wear a strapless bra or one with invisible straps :)
