Here is my take on the popular Burda 7494. I didn’t like the idea of a pencil skirt anyway so I made a half circle skirt instead. I love how this turned out! Probably the cutest dress I’ve ever made. I originally bought the spotty fabric to make another Vogue dress like the black one and the yellow gingham ones I made previously, but after seeing JuliaBobbin’s version of this dress it stole my little heart away.
I loved how easy it was to make this dress (not to mention fast!) but I did have some issues with the back of the neckline, but after four attempts to fix it I decided it wasn’t worth bothering about!
