Sewing a summer dress – the dress “Florence”

The dress “Florence” is our must-have dress for the coming summer! The casual cut is decorated with beautiful flower embroidery and Spanish hemstitching on sleeves and hem, the dress is a real eye-catcher. The free pattern is available in sizes 36 to 48.

The summer dress is from the inspiration Special 2018.
In the edition it was combined with a bag, with flowers on the front of the bag. On the cover of the magazine you can see the combination of these two sewing projects.

The “inspiration Special 2018” is completely dedicated to the motto “decorate and embroider”. This applies not only to the fashion world, but also to home decor.
