Description

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!

Material Notes

Navy Blue satin from my local fabric shop, 22" zip, hook and eye, navy lining,

    Gorgeous dress! Can I ask what Burda pattern you used for the bodice?

      Hi Janene. The pattern I modified for the top was a vintage butterick 3451. I drew my own pattern and gave it princess seams so I can use it again.

      PS- Love the silk pin up pants, I must try those sometime!
