The latest addition to the Eitchy 2008 spring/summer collection, a pink dress. The pattern I used was Danielle.
I realised I rarely use patterned fabric so with this design I used a small print pattern (I did the same with the Celestina dress). Maybe some day I’ll dare to really use patterns on fabrics.
I found a lovely pink/apricot cotton fabric, I also managed to find a cotton ribbon in the exact shade of the pattern on the fabric. I’m ready for spring and summer!
Pattern: Burdastyle 9306, Danielle
Difficulty: Novice (Burdastyle’s rating – I agree)
Alterations: Replaced inset with ribbon.
Fabric: Printed cotton, cotton ribbon
Notions: Invisible zipper, interfacing
Project rating: Love this dress! Figure flattering, for me, and simple to sew. I really like the silhouette.
