We <3 Kaffe Fassett for Liberty Art Fabrics here at BurdaStyle, so we are excited to be using their fabric for this pattern remake! We looked to our Ellinor blouse pattern for this design, and the changes, while looking quite different from the original, we really quite simple.
Here’s what we did: We eliminated the sleeves so you can easily layer a cardigan over this dress, and trimmed the armhole with self-made bias binding for a finished look (see tutorial below). We lengthened the skirt by continuing the side seams to about mid-thigh. We dropped the neckline 1/4" so the neckline would sit at the collarbone. The original pattern calls for trim at the neckline, so we used a contrasting Liberty print in blue for that and added a cute little button to keep the top closed.
