This dress is based on Burdastyle’s 12/2011 issue pattern #102. I used a crushed velvet and was surprised at how easy it was to work with. I cut out a size 36 but I should have cut out a size 34 because it was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. Anyways, I love the A line shape.
Simple and fun to make.
2 yards, crushed velvet, 1 yard of black lining, thread
