Spring Floral Dress

Added Feb 18, 2011

Brooklyn, New Yo...






Sometimes I need a break from sewing bags… and wedding season is fast approaching so I thought it would be fun to sew a cute dress.

I used McCalls Pattern M5382.

The fabric is a very light weight cotton that I found in one of the fabric shops on 39th St in NYC. I used a cotton lining (quilting weight) but if I were to make this dress again, I would definitely use something more silky… The dress seems a bit bulky but I guess that’s what I get for being impatient and not waiting to get the right supplies ;)

Material Notes





Spring, Summer
Casual, Evening Wear, Romantic

    So cute! My formal is next year so I am huinting around fro dress patterns and I am considering making this dress! I have seen this pattern in the books but I went straight past it….your dress looks way better than McCalls! :) I love the fabric-so pretty!

      I think this pattern would make a really beautiful formal dress! You should definitely post pictures of your finished project on Burda!

    What a gorgeous neckline! I actually really like it in the cotton – it gives the skirt more body than you would get with a slinky, silky fabric.
