I made this dress for a challenge on my blog called “12 months + 12 fabrics = 12 garments that I love” this February. The bodice is from a “tall” pattern from Burda Magazine, the skirt and ruffle idea came from the Coffee Date Dress here on Burdastyle. However, I changed the shape of the ruffle and I love how it came out… I think this is going to be one of my favourite summer dresses!
fabric from a shower curtain found on the flea market, white cotton/polyester blend fabric for details
