Notes As it is getting colder and I keep "borrowing" my boyfriend's lumberjack shirt, I thought why not using flanell for a nice and cozy autumn dress?

I think this was a brilliant idea, the dress turned out wonderfully comfortable and warm. I added 1 centimeter to my actual measurements to be able to wear a long sleeve shirt and warm leggings underneath.

The sleeves of the dress took me about two hours of pinning the pieces together until I figured out how they belong together otherwise this dress was made quite quickly.

To get rid of too much "lumberjack" and make the dress look more feminine and playful, I added a satin and lace waistband and a little heart application at the front and used a black lace zipper at the back. I also shortened the dress a good deal to make it look even more playful and added a fake button blend to break the pattern of the chest, as I thought the pattern made my chest look rather broad...

I must say I am so much in love with this dress, I really hope you like it too!

    You should be nice and cosy in this!
    Good adaptation of the dress pattern, making it shorter and adding the trimmings worked well with this fabric.
