I've made this dress last year but it was a little bit big for me. But this summer after giving birth it was just my size. The pattern is taken from burdastyle issue 05/2011. This is the long edition which I prefer. Since the fabric I used is a little bit heavy, I didn't put lining (everytime I try to avoid it). I like the vintage vibe of this dress and I think that kind of patterns are great to hide some more kilos from waist and down. The zipper on the back is invisible and as you can see from the pictures I added some hems.
