1  Purple Summer Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by escorpio on: August 30, 2007 12:53:54 AM
Ok, I finished this in June but I've been too lazy to put it up. I used http://www.burdamode.com/Free,1333669-1413206-1333668,enEN.html which wasn't that easy. First of all the descriptions were in German (good thing I took it in high school) and the sizes were really strange, or maybe that's just since you choose based on the bust measurement. I had to put in extra darts in the front, make the ones in the back wider as well as cutting of about 2 inches all together. The weird thing, however was that the sleeves didn't fit at all, I couldn't get them around my arms. I don't know if they were supposed to be left open, but that looked weird so I made them to fit (must have some artistic freedom, right?)

Anyway, enough talking, on to the dress
