Polka dots and ruffles dress!

Added May 6, 2010

by laurwyn

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
Cotton, Knits/Jersey

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