Description

This dress is one of my absolute favourites created from Burdastyle seamed dress #120. I have made so many of these dresses over the past few years. You can see my previous version on the BurdaStyle website.

For this version I merged the top two pieces for both the front and the back and added the sleeves (included in the pattern). I have also added an extra two darts around the neckline to give it a bit more detail.

The major difference in this version compared to the one shown on BurdaStyle is the skirt. To make it like this, all I had to do was was add about 10-15cm to the width, which then allowed me to add four spaced out pleats to the skirt front and back. I also split the bottom of the skirt into two separate parts to create the different coloured panels.
