Dress with Ruches

Added Jun 8, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






This dress is based on pattern #121 Burda 06/2009. First I made a long version as the pattern, but I like the short style better for my lovely niece :)
The fabric is linen/cotton and I have used cotton to make the ruches. I have used the raw edges on bias and I think it is a nice decoration.

Material Notes





Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Evening Wear
Cotton, Linen
