I made this beautiful A-line tunic dress from BurdaStyle pattern #102 as part of a Burdastyle competition. The dress has a basic tunic shape, with tucks on either side of a front yoke that is closed with button loops and tiny shank buttons. It was fun to make and I love the way it came out.
I had never made button loops before and they were challenging but they look great and really give the dress an authentic “peasant” look. I am so fortunate that my lovely identical cousin Cathy was willing to model two different looks: bohemian folk singer and urban career woman! (Which do YOU prefer?)

I used a beautiful Westminster liberty art fabric (co-sponsors of the competition) designed by Kaffe Fassett and part of his paisley collection. The design is called “lozenge” in mint. It was a joy to work with, with lots of body and considerable drape.
