I loved the flapper style dress on the cover of Burdastyle’s 6/2012 issue so I used it for my latest project. I used #116 view A. The lining was much too sheer and it’s really my fault for not using the recommended fabric so I still wore a slip under the underdress. The lace is easy to work with. The chiffon was not nearly the nightmare I anticipated.I followed the instructions on how much fabric to get for this project and was left with way more than I needed. I probably could’ve gotten away with just a yard of chiffon and a yard of lace but oh well. I’ll find a way to use it for something else.
I love the airy, lightness of the whole dress. Summer here we come.
1.5 yard of chiffon, 1.5 yard lace, 1.5 yard lining. thread
