Denim 'Almost Pollini Dress'

Added Jul 18, 2008

by pernille

Herning, Denmark






This is my version of the ‘Almost pollini dress’. It’s made out of thin denim fabric with a little stretch and it’s very comfortable to wear. I only had about 1 meter of fabric, so I had to shorten the dress a little bit. I also made the sleeves shorter, but that was intentional. Besides that I lowered the neckline a bit, added small pleatings to the top and elastic to the end of the sleeves.

I like this pattern a lot and I’m really happy with the result.

Thin stretch denim

    It’s great, love every single alteration that you’ve made! Looks way much better then original one.

    I agree, looks very good on you. Flot stykke arbejde!! Tror jeg vil prøve det samme, med elastikken i ærmekanten…, pænere end originalen…

    I like how you used denim, I was thinking of making mine out of denim but was unsure if it would look good…nice job!

    It loks great, and it’s wonderful how you resolved your fabric situation. No one would evern know that you had little fabric. The finishing is amazing, the fabric is really pretty and it fits you like a glove. Great Job!
