I made this dress for my friends beautiful fairytale wedding this week. I wanted to wear a classic, timeless style. I modified a burda pattern for the top and cut a long strip of fabric for the skirt and put 3" box pleats in it. It was the perfect colour for an October wedding. It was a lovely easy dress to wear and I think I’m going to make another in Jacquard for the christmas season!
Navy Blue satin from my local fabric shop, 22" zip, hook and eye, navy lining,
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
