A Sundress made using the Burda Cap Sleeve Pattern, yet again, as a starting off point with major alterations. The neckline was brought up and had darts and pleats added to it, the waist was brought up, the side seams were brought down to almost non-existent, shoulder seams were altered to allow for a button closer, and of course the back was completely cut up. With that much skin showing on the back, I wanted to add a fun and full twisted bubble skirt – which traditionally isn’t found on adult dresses. But I loved the extra flair it gave to an otherwise open back. Lastly I made the button shoulder seam overlap and look off-kilter with the other shoulder, which plays in nicely with the whimsy of the dress fabric.
