One more piece from the February issue of Burda magazine.
For me it was a difficult project, I was ready to give up several times. I traced the pattern size 42 according to my measurements in the Burda magazine. It looked big and the decollete looked too big. So I decided to make a muslin first. The neck-line was really low and all the top was too big. So I went two sizes down, to 38 and even after that I had to take in a bit at the shoulder line.
The lining made from thin cotton 80 cm wide. I used only one width of fabric for each front and back parts of the skirt lining. The outer part of the skirt has been cut according to the pattern. The fabric of the outer part is rayon.
I think that subconsciously I was inspired by Doris Day floral dress in The Man Who Knew Too Much . After I finished the dress I realised that the print looks very similar.
