Summer of Dresses

Burda 7515  made from a navy silk crepe

It was a mild overcast day,  just perfect for a pic of this dress that I completed last year!  (Sister to my Xmas Day red dress) It is real 'easy to wear' and ' easy to make'.

I followed the pattern and overlocked the edge,  next time I will try a 'rolled' hem using my regular machine.  This dress took about 2 hours to complete.   No zip, no buttons, no hem, no interfacing and very little pressing

Three rectangles  sewn together,  what an easy dress,  just perfect for

Red dress 7515

Fabric:  1.5 m.  (so old I forget the cost)
Notions:  Cotton from my stash.
Shoes:  Faithful old Crocs, just perfect for the beach.
