winter take on a summer dress

for some reason i didn’t buy the 10/2010 burda edition despite spotting a gorgeous dress. initially wanted to make a woollen winter dress, I came across the pattern (again) and decided to make a winter version. So i lengthened the skirt and wanted to make longer sleeves as well, but it just didn’t work out and i already had a lot of difficulties with inserting the cap sleeves. It is not as “full” as the pattern suggests it as I didn’t have enough fabric.
It’s not finished yet as I am still undecided about the length. I love the length though wonder when I could wear this dress. a shorter version would definitely blend in more with the “outside world” :P

Material Notes

wool, cotton

    I love this, whatever knee length you choose I hope you do wear it..it’s too beautiful to be hanging in a closet!

    Love the woollen version of this pattern! I’m not a huge fan of lengthy dresses, though, so I would go for the just below the knees length. However, I would say what really matters is the weather. Will the winter be dry and you could wear the dress with full length, I would say go for it if it’s what you want! :)

    I love the neckline, it’s a nice feminine contrast to such a traditional plaid!
