I don't usually buy modern pattern magazines, because in my experience the patterns rarely fit me very well. I do sometimes lend them from the library though, if I see something interesting, like this time.
This patterns is from Burda style, March 2013 magazine and I found it quite 30's inspired although I don't know if it was intended. I really liked the draping on the front and had just the right fabric for it in my stash as well. All I did was shorten the sleeves, because they looked a little clumsy on me when I fitted the dress. Other than that the fit was pretty much spot on.
The fabric is rayon batiste that I had bought a long time ago. I don't recall having any idea for it then, I just liked the butterfly pattern. I think it goes perfectly for this style.
I can't wait for the warm summer days to actually wear this dress!
