I love madras, I love bright colours, and I love ruffles!
I was inspired by this dress
I really liked the front ruffle…
I drafted the pattern myself, well the skirt is just a gathered rectangle so that was pretty easy.
And I used my fantastic serger for the ruffles edge, it is so great!
Oh and the round pocket… I think it’s cute! I got that idea from an apron here on burdastyle, but I can’t remember what it was called.
I’m afraid this empire waist makes me look like a pregnant woman… I’m not really used to it. But I love the colour so much I’ll wear it anyway!
Invisible zipper, thread, fabric.
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
