Playdate Dress

Added Apr 24, 2010

by pambox

Sydney, Australia






based on the coffee date dress. i loved the pattern, and thought this fabric – being named ‘nightowl espresso’ – just had to be used for it, but realised that the front ruffle would detract from the pattern of the fabric. so instead, i put ruffle caps at the shoulders.
my first project on burdastyle (not my first sewing project though!).

Material Notes

cotton (nightowl espresso by michael miller)




Garment Type
Beach, Casual

    Love it :) Can’t wait to try and make something similar. Makes such a difference to this project with the nice bright fabric. Well done for making it your own :) x
