I made this dress to wear to a posh afternoon tea at a local country hotel in celebration of a friends birthday.
I used the Burdastyle Danielle dress pattern for the bodice, as I’ve used this before and it fits me perfectly. I used the bodice and waistband of this pattern, and the skirt is from Burda 7407.
I self drafted some tulip sleeves and inserted a lapped zipper.
