I’ve made this dress before, but this is my favourite. I made it for a friend and added the blue buttons to make it more authentic.

Hope you like this version.

    Lovely!! I am making this dress too – it’s my next project. I’m gonna make it without a contrasting color though… Great job! Your friends are lucky, you sew them so many nice things :-)

    Really like this dress-Love the contrast and the buttons on the black fabric really stand out :)

      this is one of the most popular patterns of all time :-) It’s great, isn’t it? Only problem is it uses a TON of fabric due to the circle skirt and overlapping sections – 3.5 – 4 meters… Here’s the pattern.
