“This is my favourite thing ever that your mum has made for you”
I’ve got to agree with that!
The lovely fabric I used is a cotton and silk blend Tory Burch gauze from The Fabric Store.
I used a double layer of fabric for the bodice and skirt. The flounces are a single layer and you can see how delightfully light this fabric is.
I love this design with its asymmetrical twist and flounces.
This pattern is from the April 2019 issue of BurdaStyle
I traced off a size 40 with a 2.5 cm FBA. It ended up a little tight through the bust and hips so I took the side seams out in both these spots.
I didn’t trace a facing for the neck or arms yes but instead used premade bias binding in beige. Somewhat regretting this because the difference in fabric weight has resulted in some puckering. Clearly not enough regret to remove it! And no complaints from the recipient!
