The Chelsea Girl Dress is a fusion of two of BurdaStyle’s most popular patterns: The Theresa dress and the the Sidonie variation 2 skirt. The combination of the Theresa top and Sidonie skirt on the bottom create a lovely dress you can wear from day into night.
Named after our Kent State Fashion Design intern, Chelsea fused the two patterns together and, quite impressively, sewed the dress up in a navy imitation charmeuse. We used the matte side of the fabric for the body of the dress and skirt, and utilized the shiny side to accentuate the ruffles and pleats.
A complete tutorial was created to help you make your own Chelsea Girl dress, with or without the ruffles and pleats, it’s a sure hit.
