Two days late, but I made it! And I'm really satisfied with my last dress.
As I've already told you, I had a change of plan with the patterns I chose.
I used pattern 104 from Burda 02/2011, but since it was a little plain for me, I added a huge bow on the front. It might not be for everyone, but I'm a sucker for bows!
The fit was spot on this time, although I made the panels for the skirt smaller than required by the Burda instructions, because it didn't want too much volume. Actually, I didn't follow the instructions at all, since they were a bit ridiculous (for example, they make you sew just one pocket to the skirt!).
The fabric I used is a baby blue linen I had in my stash and I love both the color (which reminds me a lot of Alice in Wonderland) and the slightly crinckled texture. I lined the dress with a flowery material that I find very sweet (my mom and I were given a whole bolt of it as a gift).
Oh, and if you're wandering why I'm wearing a cardigan on July 2nd, it' because it's 17°C today. :(
So... the challenge is finished, what's next? Stay tuned!
