Diary of a shirt dress: The reveal!


And it's finally done! And I love it!

I sewed in the remaining buttons while on vacation in Italy and took photos.


Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to go out in it in Florence as was planned because we lost our luggage and only got it back after we left the city and headed to Garda lake, where it simply didn't fit in 😔


But I hope it's still possible to do that in Egypt in 2 weeks time while meeting some of my suppliers and buying fabric for my upcoming store 😀


If you haven't already, you can read the rest of this diary here.

With not too much more to say, I'll leave you to the photos.







Pattern: A bit of BurdaStyle 6/2014 #122, a bit of BurdaStyle 9/2016 #101 and a lot of own drafting (see details in Diary of a shirt dress series)
Fabric: Hawaa Textiles Cairo.
Buttons: Crystal beads from Stoff og Stil.
Photos taken on the balcony of Hotel Flori overlooking lake Como, Italy.
