Pattern: BWOF 04-2010-112. A one-dot, super-easy Burda pattern.
Fabric: A gift from my cousin, I think. Or my aunt. It is a cotton fabric, and the black dots are sort of embossed. I really like this color on me!
Construction: This was a one-dot pattern, and it actually was really, really easy. In fact, I should have been finished with it in two hours, until I hit one tiny snag. My casing for the elastic - not wide enough. (Silly Burda directions!) Make your life easier - sew a half-inch casing, not a 3/8 inch casing like the pattern suggests. After much painful trying to push the elastic through, I finally ripped and redid the casing.
Also worth noting - the elastic length they suggest is for a falling-off-the-shoulders look. I wasn't really interested in this, so I shortened the elastic till it stayed on my shoulders.
Likes/Dislikes: Really like. I wore this dress out Friday night, I got looks! Looks are fun.
Oh, this was actually dress 6. I sort of skipped past dress 5 since I wanted to wear this dress out Friday night.
