I love sewing with cotton voile and it’s so delicate to wear, and for this pattern it was good since the dress has gathering in the sides. This is an informal dress, but it’s a great summer dress :)

Material Notes

Cotton voile.

    Such a beautiful dress! In the beginning, I thought it was wade from light-weight denim. I agree with previous comments: your variations look so much better than some BS ones! Happy midsummer!

    I LOVE this dress Ellen, it looks beautiful on you! You make these patterns/dresses waaaay better than the original BS version!! I’m serious, it’s as if I saw the dress for the first time, because the BS version didn’t even catch my eye… Great job!

    Love it, Ellen!!! I didn’t think about this style in a more delicate fabric, and it looks so beautiful. Love the pop of red with the very versatile blue…beautifully finished!

    Beautiful dress as usual! I’m working on exactly the same fabric right now! I had in mind to make this dress with it but with the smaller collar, not the lapels and with white details. However I changed my mind when I bought the July Burdstyle issue and saw model 121… Good luck!!!
