August Party Dress

Added Sep 1, 2012

by redpippa

Vancouver, Canada






Perfect for the end of the summer – bright and sunny and screaming to have a much fun as possible before the summer ends.

The bodice is the Seamed Dress 08/2012 #120
The skirt is from the Swing Dress 08/2012 #133

I didn’t make any changes except to add big inseam pockets, which work so well in the full skirt.
I changed the bottom because wanted a dress I can move in, ride my bike in, and could add pockets to.

Material Notes

The yellow is cotton jaquard and the orange shoulders are a synthetic silk.
Its fully lined with a light yellow cotton.




Summer, Spring
Garment Type
