Polka dots and ruffles dress!

Added May 6, 2010

Tilburg, Netherl...






For a second project, I wanted a cute polka dot dress. As it was hard to find a nice pattern that I could alter to fit me (yes I still have pounds to shed),
- I took a top from burda (nb 105 from the april burdastyle).
- I copied a pattern from a skirt I already had.
- And just put them together.

White ruffles were a cute contrast, and I used a red belt and red shoes…
And my lovely man took the pictures!

Material Notes

- polka dots cotton fabric (navy blue and white)
- white lycra for the ruffles




Garment Type
Casual, Classic, Preppy, Romantic, Vintage

      Yep, and it’s quite different from people you see in the Netherlands, they tend to be monochrome and “basic”
