This dress is made from the Burda pattern 02/2011 Dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves.

After stumbling across a fabulous yellow polka dot fabric, I knew I wanted to make a fun, yet classic every day dress for this Spring & Summer.

Looking forward to pairing it with a cardi for Spring, and some red heels for the Summer. Love it, was a great and simple pattern to work with!

Material Notes

basic quilting cotton




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Preppy

    So jealous! I’ve been looking for white-on-yellow polka dot to make a dress, but haven’t found any as awesome as this one. Either the dots aren’t right or the shade of yellow is bad… :D

      I stumbled across it at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks back! Was shopping with a friend and we both immediately snatched it up :). Good luck!

      Thank you! I flipped for fabric, and knew the style dress I wanted to make while purchasing it. So when I saw this burda pattern, I was pretty happy :)
