Pink Polkadot Minna Dress

Added Oct 22, 2008

by teamydear

Lux Or Bel, Belgium






My first BurdaStyle dress!
It took me about 30 hours I think, between August 2008 & October 2008.
I made no significant alterations.
I added an inseam pocket, used bias binding to get the neckline right, made the back a bit rounder and I took the back center seam in, just a bit to make it more fitting. I (well, my mom) also fitted the lace on myself instead of on the pattern piece.
I am very happy with it!

Material Notes

Pink cotton with white polkadots
Bias binding






My mom for her advice, help and a lot of pinning

    So cute! In this fabric, the Mina dress looks so much more casual! Very nice!

    I really like it. I lot of the Minnas have been more formal looking. This seems more casual for everyday wear. I really like it.
