Added Jan 21, 2012
For this dress I used BurdaStyle magazine’s 02/2011 #101 (dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves). I cut a size 12 which was way too big. I’m still having some fit issues. I think I added too much of a seam allowance as well. A very simple fix but I just couldn’t wait to post it. I can definitely see myself making this again in the future. I also think a good idea would be to attach a different skirt to the bodice. I think I might have some fun with that.
When I was getting the fabric cut and my boyfriend mentioned that the pattern looked like pomegranate seeds. I just love pomegranates, they’re my favorite fruit. I knew instantly that whatever I created from this fabric was going to be named after them.
Sorry for the poor quality of pics, cold temps are keeping me inside :P.
