Sheerness with Purple-dot-ness

Added May 27, 2011

This idea had been brewing for quite some time.
After finding on of my favourite dress patterns EVER in no. 101 from burdamagazine 02/2011 I finally got it done! The bodice is a really nice fit and easy to alter, which I love, because it makes so very different ideas as this one and my Asymmetrical Dress possible from just one rather simple pattern!
I obviously changed the neckline region and added a strip of the sheer fabric at the hem.

If you’ve got a minute, maybe you might be interested in taking a little stroll over to my blog ? There might be cookies over there. That’s not a promise. Actually it’s probably a lie, but, you know… nothing’s impossible :)

Material Notes

heavy black cotton, chiffon with purple and white dots, black satin bias-tape




Spring, Summer
Garment Type

    Absolutely awesome twist on the basic dress! I really like the combination of sheer and solid fabric you have going here.
