sisterMAG Pattern 48/3 – Sand-coloured Chambray Dress

For our May 2019 issue of sisterMAG, we made our way to a very special destination. In the Rußwurmsches Herrenhaus in Breitungen, Thuringia, many centuries immortalized themselves: »eroded sandstones, weathered half-timbered beams, steps worn by generations, soot from the Thirty Years’ War in the chimney …«. In this historic setting, we staged dresses made of chambray and flame nettle reminiscent of clothes from Vermeer’s painting. Find here the download for the Sand-colored Chambray Dress.

48-3 Sand-coloured Chambray Dress

The dress is made of Chambray – also known as Batiste. The fabric is characterized by differently colored warp and weft threads that give the fabric an extraordinary shine.

Our pattern is characterized by a low attached skirt below the waist. With puffed sleeves and a deep V-neck, it’s both super modern, but also feels a bit set back in time!
