Have any of you noticed the pin-up worthy retro-inspired work of BurdaStyle member BlancheOfArts? If you haven’t yet— you’re in for a treat, as she has kindly shared her latest creation with us! Made from vintage cotton viscose. All edges are finished with navy bias tape; straps, pockets and hem completed with navy piping.
BlancheOfArts used the bodice of this dress and fused it together with a fun circle skirt for the bottom, instead of the pattern’s original gathered rectangle skirt. Be sure to download the free circle skirt pattern to view the tutorial to make your own. Note: The instructions for the circle skirt tutorial are not included in the project’s “instructions” download but the “pattern” download.
Self: 2 meters cotton viscose (2 1/2 yards); 2 meters (2 1/2 yards) dark blue piping, 2 meters (2 1/2 yards bias tape); 2 buttons.
