Los Angeles, Cal...






Inspired by the SS 2011 trend of blouson dresses and intriguing prints. Simple and chic design with a beautiful print. Please ignore the crazy hair… I just got out of bed. Haha!

Learn more about this dress on my blog.

For those who are asking, this is Dress 111 from burdastyle magazine 05/2011. I will link it as soon as they release the pattern!

      Thank you!

      Though you should be warned that I was between sizes in the hips and sized down but eliminated the pockets because I didn’t want it to be bulky (and I envision this dress with a clutch)! I think if I had sized up it would have been really ill fitting.

    I’ve been wanting to make this since I got the magazine last week. Now I really, really want make it! Did you put pockets in yours in the end? I can’t decide whether I’m going to or not.

      I did away with the pockets. I put them in at first but because I am between sizes at the hips and had sized down, I later took them out because of the bulk.

      Thank you!

      The shoes are BCBGeneration from PiperLime. They should be on sale if they’re still there. :)

    Is this dress 111B from May 2011 Magazine? If it is you have made it beautifully. Great fabric choice. On first glance I didn’t think this dress was at all flattering. Yours is a far better rendition!

      Yes it is and thank you!

      I’ve been looking to make a dress like in the magazine but was too lazy to draft the pattern so this was the perfect find. :)
