Burdastyle Floral Long Crop Top Dress for Gigi's Baptism

Added Aug 11, 2014

by Marusya Grace

South Bend, Unit...






Last winter I made a shorter (and velvet) version of this dress (12/2013 Designer Masterpiece). Unfortunately, the velvet material of the first dress made it difficult to see all the details and pleats of the dress. I swore then that I would make this dress design again (before it goes out of style). I was so busy this spring that I never got around to it. But once I was asked to be Gigi’s godmother, I knew I had to do this dress design for her Baptism!

Read and see more on my blog:

I also made my sister a burdastyle dress for Gigi’s baptism! I will post it later today/tomorrow! I also loved her dress!

    Absolutely stunning! I love the pleating at the neckline and how the back opens up. So bohemian and fresh but also modest!

    Wonderful dress. The fabric is used so well to indicate all the lines and silhoette. Very smarty and nice.
