An Excessively Purple Dress!

Added Oct 22, 2012

Ankara, Turkey






This was another easy and pleasy pattern from BurdaStyle. It’s a version of the Cowl Dress that is first printed in the October ’12 issue of the magazine (no. 118a).

It’s quite an easy to sew dress with 2 very nice details. However, unlike the fabric choice advised by the pattern company, I used a moderately lightweight fabric and ended up having quite a nice neckline look. More info on the project here:

    I want to sew this dress using a knit fabric and no zipper, so thank you for experimenting ahead of me! :). Great dress!

    I used a ligthweight cotton fabric with prints. If you intend to sew it Jilleighlum, you shoud pay a little more attention to the front hem line of the dress… that was the only downside of this pattern.
