Lovely Summer Dress Challenge

Pattern: Burda 8071
Fabric: Hilco, from local store

I am new to garment sewing (this is an important information). Nevertheless, I took the lovely summer dress challenge.

I wanted a very quick and easy to sew empire line summer dress  and ended up with Burda 8071.

I liked the pattern which was actually easy enough for me. I had to make some adjustments, though. At the end I am happy with how it turned out.
It was a good decision to leave the bottom seam to the very end.

I used a 100% cotton from Hilco in light blue with tiny flowers.

Can't wait for the first really hot days to show it of ...
