Description

Made this dress (Burda 8174) for a rock ’n roll party in 2008.

I was lucky enough to find the same checkered cotton with and without little flowers and decided to use the flowered one for the top part and plain one for the skirt. Adjusted the skirt to make it wider.

The 4 tiered petticoat took me ages to make, as I made 4 layers and I did not have a ruffle foot and had to ruffle all tiers by hand.

Material Notes

cotton, organza for the petticoat

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Nice! the petticoat gives the fullness to the skirt and its worth the hard work.. i use the short cut of using a thicker border at the hem, dont have the patience for the petticoat, may make it for some dress…. some time…..later………donno when..
