Balloon taffeta dress

Added Oct 6, 2008

I made this dress using a pattern from Burda 8/2007. I altered it a little bit because I hate those small sleeves…
I wear it at a christening party and I felt great:-}

    Thank you sooo much for this lovely comments. It makes me so happy;))) I was afraid of balloon skirts but this pattern is really flattering to any figure. I’m going to try this in plaid tartan fabric, too.

    Looks great, this simple pattern is perfect for the taffeta. It gets really interesting through the glittery and shimmery fabric.
