This dress is made out of the bodice from BWOF 101-02-2011 and Pattern runway’s Gathered Sundress Pattern
The amount of muslins and alterations I had to make to get the bodice to fit just right is INSANE, but I am so happy with the result, it was all worth it in the end.
I added red piping to the neckline, armholes and pockets to add some contrast. I found the original Burda skirt a bit ‘meh’ so the PR skirt with pockets was perfect for my use of piping.

Light weight Coton fabric
