Pomegranates of Persephone dress

Lincoln, Nebrask...






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.

    Your dress is lovely and looks great on you. I have just finished making the same dress (different fabric of course) to wear to a party tonight and I am happy with it. I always have fitting issues with low cut necklines and I added 1’’ to the front lower neckline so I wouldn’t reveal too much. I agree with you, a different skirt would be nice. If I had had enough fabric, I would have used Burda pattern 126 in 6/2009 or 107 in 11/2007.

      Thanks! After I take it in just a bit, it’s going to be one of my favorites!
