Description

This is definitely a great pattern which I found in Burda special 5/2013. I have tried it once before to make a top I have used dobble knitted wool fabric combined with a sheer wool I had left from another project. It’s not so easy to see the pleats on the shoulders, but this makes the pattern more interesting. I have been wearing the dress a lot and it’s very warm and comfy :)

    fantastic dress! I love the colours together, was actually standing at a fabric stall yesterday and considering buying some ponte roma in those colours, but I need a third colour to go with it. just couldn’t decide, so I got something completely different. wonderful pictures again. I hope whoever takes the photos doesn’t take too long, you must be freezing posing outside :-))
