Throwback ThursdayI think that summer has finally arrived here in sunny Cornwall! It is certainly feeling like a warm summers day again today so for Throwback Thursday I am posting this lovely summery dress that I made last year on a rare August afternoon off. It'not quite hot enough to be wearing this today so these are also last years photos
The pattern is Burda 7065
I made View A which is the top, but lengthened it to make a maxi dress as I didnt want the fullness of the skirt in View B. I chose this pattern because the key feature here is the crossover halter neckline. It's not actually made up as a crossover; you cross it over to wear it! Genius!
Tah dah!! To this...!
Totally loving this fabric. It's got Maxi Dress written all over it! Isn't it such a pretty summery print? It's a Jersey Viscose and is perfect for this dress. Also perfect for holidays as it doesn't crease. I bought it from http://www.minervacrafts.com/ last year so it's now unavailable but I almost made it in this lovely jersey viscose instead. That would look fabulous too in this pattern; well any maxi dress pattern!
Had to do quite a bit of taking in on the halter neck strap ( a good 3"!!) to get the right fit as I found it very loose, but other than that this went together really well.

I don't have too many photos of this dress as I wasn't blogging when I made it, but you get the idea I'm sure :)
Thanks for stopping by :)
