SophiaDress with Petticoat

Added Aug 14, 2011

by taketina

Dresden, Germany






Like I wrote in the description of my Gingham-SummerDress I’ve made a second, more classy version of the burdastyle magazin dress. For that I altered the passform to make it a little bit more tight in the top and worked it with a zipper in the side like the pattern says. I lined the hole dress with a light brown polytaft. To give the skirt a bit more stand I made my first little petticoat with just two layers. I styled it with just a litlle belt and shoes in the same color. I wore this dress to an after-wedding-party this weekend an plan to wear it again when we will visit opera or theatre.

Material Notes

cotton/poplin in powder blue with roses, brown polytaft, brown tulle




Garment Type
Classic, Romantic, Vintage
Cotton, Polyester, Tulle
