I fell in love with this pattern the moment I saw it in the new issue of Burda WOF! I immediately left the house to buy grey ribknit and sewed up this super-easy, super-comfy dress (only 2 pattern pieces!). The only thing I hadn't thought about that the money my parents had left me had been for food... not fabric! Thanks to my friends who invited me to eat at their place I didn't starve :)

...but I feel this dress was worth it!


I love the cutout on the back.


From the front it looks very plain and simple, but with the darts on the back it has quite a nice shape.
(and please ignore my awkward attemps at NOT looking stupid on a photo)

On my dressform:





I really recommend it to anyone, it's a pretty quick and easy, wearable dress!
Thanks for looking and I ❤ your comments :)

This is brilliant, such a nice shape - I really want to make one now! Was it difficult sewing all the curves so smoothly?

Thanks!
No, I was surprised at how easy it was; before sewing the side seams you have to iron on bias-cut strips of interfacing (I used the store-bought ones, which are about 1 cm wide) and iron them on next to the stitching lines (on the garment side next to the seam allowances), then iron the allowances to the inside and stitch everything in place with a twin needle!

I love this, you did a good job.

I know what you mean about buying material instead of food,
my kitchen cupboard are permanently empty but my material stash seems to be growing Roll Eyes
