By participating in a Project Runway-esque competition at Kent State University, winner Theresa Rietschlin won the opportunity to have a creation of their choice made into a BurdaStyle sewing pattern sponsored by Coats & Clark. This is her lovely design.

This sweet, sleeveless dress pattern features a curved neckband and ruffled front, a voluminous skirt with side pockets and a band which ties at the waist. It is a perfect summer frock. We made our sample in a paisley printed cotton, but explore other cotton options, too. For the front ruffles, we serged the edges, but you could also do a zig-zag stitch or simply leave the edges raw for a more vintage feel.
