I made this dress out of an old double duvet I had lying around, and I just loved the fabric. It’s soft, light and a simple pattern – perfect for a summer dress. It’s been worn and loved, I’ve just taken an age to get the project on here.
I based it on the Burda Style 02/2011 Bustier pattern, just adding a full circle skirt (this is my absolute favourite pattern on here, It has been the base of so many items I’ve made, and there’s another one brewing…).
I put bias brinding round the hem, so as to not have to make it any shorter (and yes, I know it’s a wee bit of a choppy hem…) and I ommited the straps, although as my size goes up and down like a yo-yo I’m debating adding a halter neck strap for security sake.
BUT the best bit about this dress is that it was a reversible duvet, so I have another dress cut out and ready to sew together. Can’t wait!
