I recommend this pattern with great pleasure! The universal dress, simple, with great fitting. It can be made from any fabric, both thin and dense. It is easy to pair with other things in the wardrobe. I like it very very much!!
And it became just ideal after I changed the waist line – just put it on the right place: lengthened the bodice for 1 cm and shortened the skirt along the wiast for 1 cm as well. In this way I feel myself more comfortable.

And I even wasn’t lazy to hem the skirt and sleeves with slip stitch:-))

Material Notes

The dress is made from stretch cotton and viscose blend. The fabric is pretty dense but anyway I lined the bodice as it mentioned in the instructions. I also made a cowl from stretch satin to match the outfit.
The faux leather jacket is my last spring project http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/blue-palette .
