Burda Style Dress Pattern 06/2012 #2 (PT)

This green linen has a lovely color but it is impossible to photograph! With plenty of light the color always seems washed out, with little light loses it’s brightness and I could not find the right light to bring you the real color of this linen. I made three dresses in different sizes: 110cm, 98cm, 86cm.

It’s good to see that these equal dresses are for my girls! I’m not the kind of mother that dresses the kids with equal outfits, seriously, and I had promised myself I would never made my daughters look the same. And if it depended only on me I assure you that this would never happen, because I remember having clothes equal to my sisters and I hated the feeling of lack of me, as if the equality of the all would annuls the individuality of the parties, but should not have four years by then! The truth is that whenever I buy anything for Teresa, Mafalda asks me why I did not buy the same for her, and when she helped me to choose the fabrics she wanted me to make her dresses the same as her sisters. After negociating I’ve decided to make just one equal dress for them. And here it is! The floral pattern was her choice!

For this one I’ve used a print that I used in my first baby quilt and this dress is for a little girl that once upon a time was the baby for whom I made the quilt!
