Description

A long sleeve knit maxi dress made from frankenpatterning (if its not a word, it should be) an a-line skirt pattern with a long sleeve tee pattern from the 2-2011 issue of Burdastyle. I love that tee pattern and use it for everything, but it’s not listed here! Either that or I just can’t find it. I used a rayon/cotton interlock and underlined it with a poly ITY knit to make it a little more substantial.

More on the old blog if you are interested.

Material Notes

Cotton/rayon knit, poly ITY

    The yellow belt rocks and the dress looks super comfy! I’ve often thought of taking a shirt pattern and skirt pattern I love and putting them together, so this definitely inspires me. Looks great!
