Notes This sewing project wouldn’t have been possible without the lekala community :-) After I was so fascinated by a fabric that Monique had used for her dress #5963, she did not only sent me her fabric leftover, but included a half finished sewing project. As far as I understood this dress turned out as too small for her.

For luck I had just experienced a complete makeover of a jacket. So I took the chance to reconstruct a dress for me out of Monique’s material.

In the following pics you can see how the dress developed. The result is dedicated to the fabulous Monique. In case I should win the weekly contest I’ll donate the voucher to Monique :-) THANK YOU!!!

    Thank you all for your nice feedback! Itvwas all just a matter of chance. Only the sleeve pattern is prefab from a Burda pattern I recently used for another dress.

    What a lovely dress! Your version is much nicer than the original one, did you draft your own sleeve, or use one from another pattern?

  • Diana Boon
