I used Burdastyle’s 3/2013 pattern # 131 to make this chiffon dress. I like the V neck and also that there’s a built in support feature for the bust. Chiffon can be a nightmare but I love how it feels when everything is completed. I used an underdress I made for a previous project so I wouldn’t be revealing too much.
1.5 yards of chiffon, 20 in zipper
