Description

Burda 7217 (one of the pre-printed patterns you can get in your local fabric shop) is a twist on the basic princess cut dress. The front of the bodice has princess seams as well as half of the skirt. What really attracted me was the swoopy waist that curves down & around the body. I knew that I would want to emphasize that part & I knew how I wanted to do it: polka dots. Hence, The Drunken Polka Dotted Princess Dress. Smaller dots on the top, larger on bottom, splashed together as if with a drunken hand that couldn’t draw a straight line.

I love this dress & get compliments on it all the time, I just wish I had made it a size smaller (just like with the big 4 pattern companies, if you make this you should go down a size). But amazingly, even though it’s pretty loose, it’s still very flattering & doesn’t obscure my shape.
