Description

This is my second dress using Burdastyle’s 6/2013 #128 pattern. I loved the first one so much that I needed to make one with a lighter, floral fabric. So easy to make. Just make sure you use a light weight fabric because this is really two dresses that are being made.

Material Notes

1.5 yard of polyester floral fabric, 1.5 yard of rose colored apparel lining, 3/8 inch elastic

    Lovely dress – suits you perfect! I do have the pattern as well, but haven’t tried it yet.. Then I understand I have to use light fabric :) Thanks!

      Thank you! I made a similar dress with a heavier cotton and it just didn’t drape right. With a gathered waist unless you’re very tiny, it’s better to go lightweight I think.
