This is the second attempt at this dress! The first one turned out in a size zero at the most! As I loved the fabric and had bought shoes and earrings to match it I had another go! I had planned to do it with Burda 7114, however I knew the sleeves would not work so went for my usual shift style. This is the same as my ladies that lunch dress, which I love to wear. However, I tried to be too clever with my measuring and the darts are not exactly right, however as long as ,I don’t move the bow tends to hide them!
I used silver buttons on the cuffs and the collar at the back.
