All of the member creations of the Danielle dress on BurdaStyle convinced me that I needed to give the pattern and the square neckline a chance (it’s also hard to resist a free pattern). I especially liked RagDollyy’s version with the lowered back.
For my Danielle, I lowered the back and added an inch overlap on each side for a button closure rather than a zipper. The bodice is fully lined in the same floral cotton and I added pockets to the side seams in a gray cotton. I got the floral cotton from a thrift store and there wasn’t quite enough for the skirt of the Danielle pattern, so I did a simple gathered skirt instead. The pink buttons down the back were also bought secondhand. Thrifted cotton and buttons plus a free pattern make for an inexpensive dress.
