While I’m still in this creative slump I thought I’d upload another project I made last summer.
My inspiration came from another project on BurdaStyle, someone made a full skirted variation of this Vogue dress, but unfortunately I can’t find the link to it :-( EDIT I found it! It was this lovely dress by frkbustad * I commented on it at the time and thought that I’d like to try something similar so here’s the result.
The first time I made a wiggle dress from the same pattern and I had to make quite a few adjustments to make the bodice fit, so this time the job was a bit easier as I’d saved the adjusted pattern pieces. Instead of the wiggle skirt I attached a slightly longer (below the knee) full skirt to the bodice with pleats added under the bodice darts. The dress closes at the back with a concealed zipper. It’s made out of a lovely tulip-print cotton I found at my local fabric shop and is fully lined.
Cotton (ca 2.5 m I think) , Lining fabric, invisible zip (ca 20")
