I needed a dress to wear to an early spring, formal wedding. Alas most of my dresses are sundresses since summer weddings are quite common around here… I found some beautiful satin fabric on clearance ($4/m) and used the FREE Danielle pattern (Maya variation) from Burdastyle. Not only did the dress turn out amazingly, I successfully put the zipper in on 1.5 tries (which is an accomplishment since I don’t have a zipper foot). Great success!
