This is a fun dress for summer with billowy slit sleeves and a slight bubble shaped dress, easy to wear with belts, sandals, or even boots. I’ve already worn it to meetings and family gatherings. The printed fabric, I couldn’t resist. When prepping this project be sure to use stay tape at the pocket seams and reduce bulk at the neck line prior to placing the elastic in the casing. I was a little hesitant about placing the pockets in this dress as the fabric was thin and I don’t like shallow pockets—however I was pleasantly surprised at the roomy size of the burda in seam pockets and they actually lay flat. Because this fabric is so sheer, a previously home made cotton slip was perfect for wearing underneath. This may not be a classic piece, but joyful to wear for now!
