My friend gave me this fabric for my birthday and said, “Make something fun!” Here’s the result. It’s fun to wear, despite the many mistakes, fitting issues, and cheater alterations. I feel more cheerful the moment I put it on!
I used the bubble dress pattern from Burda World of Fashion 8/2007 (101 A,B). Omitted the lining and shortened the pattern to mid-hip. The finished length matches up with a pattern marking for view B.
Lightweight cotton, bias tape, zipper.
