Description

Ever since I laid eyes on Black Halo’s Jackie O dress a few years ago I fell in love with it, but I could never pay $350-$400 for it (http://www.blackhalo.com/store/jackie-o-dress-3/). So when I saw this Poly crepe like coral fabric I had to make the dress. Of course the neckline is a bit different, but it satisfies me for now. I do want to change the name of the dress and call it a ‘puzzle dress’ – it felt like I’m putting together a puzzle with all those pieces :))

Material Notes

Crepes, Linen, Woolens and Faille
BurdaStyle doesn’t have the correct / sufficient categories in the Suggested Material section. They have mixed in ‘content’ instead of the type of fabric based on its weave or weight / drapability.

    Great little dress! Is this that Vogue 8872 pattern or your own? I’ve always like this style: classy, office and occasion appropriate, and fun to design with different fabric combinations. I need a dress like this.

      Thank you :) Yes, it is, I tried to put it in the credit section it kept giving me an error message!! I cut the size 8 and only modified 2 things, the sleeves/caps, they were too long and looked kind of tacky / funny, I shortened each about 2 cm. And also tapered the skirt to make it more of a pencil skirt. You should make one, it will look great on your body :)
