Natty's Matters of the Heart Dress

Added May 4, 2011

by nattyjane

Berkeley, Califo...






This dress is a variation of BurdaStyle’s Danielle Dress with sleeves that are based on the sleeves from the JJ Blouse.

I used the front bodice and waistband of the Danielle Dress as is, but changed the rest. The back bodice was lowered quite a bit, but has the same square shape as the front bodice. I used a simple gathered square for the skirt and there is an invisible zipper up the back for closure.

For the puff sleeves I extended the JJ Blouse sleeve and then I added bias tape around the arm opening and a fabric covered button closure.

My mom bought the fabric for me at a thrift shop and I bought the zipper secondhand at a rummage sale.

Also on my blog!

Material Notes

Cotton, invisible zipper, fabric covered buttons.
