I liked this dress because of the unusual cut of the skirt, of the sectioned skirt. It was a bit of a fiddle to make the section seams of the skirt seemed to groooow. As it does not have facings, the seam allowance around the neck are folded over and top stitched down. The sleeves are finished with 'liberty ' biased bindings. I think there will be only one these dresses. Not that keen on really long dresses.
I have styled it with a Mela Purdie wrap rayon top and these 'funkis' wooden sandals.
The pattern is from Burda Magazine 5/2007 issue so it is about five years old.
