Description

I knew I had to make a dress with this fabric as soon as I saw it. I love Missoni-inspired print.

I used Burda 7602, which I also used for my plaid dress, but removed the sleeve portion and moved the zipper from the back to the side. Because it was a little too straight through the sides for my liking, I added faux suede “cuffs” attached to the side of the dress using buttons on the front and the back to give the waist more emphasis, and then used black bias tape around the collar and sleeve holes to match the black cuffs. I also made sure that the pattern lined up along the side seams to make it look more professional. Because the fabric was see-through, I used a dark mauve lining on the inside of the dress.

This dress was super easy to make, perfect for a novice sewer!
