I’m new to BurdaStyle and was excited to find this challenge! It was a perfect opportunity to enter a competition while also creating a special dress for my daughter (the model in my photos) to wear on her honeymoon to the Bahamas in May!
The floral is a tissue-weight poly that would have required lining. Instead, I selected a second fashion fabric of a coordinating solid color rayon and made the dress reversible. The two fabrics work beautifully together to maintain a fluid line to the dress – and the advantage of 2 dresses in 1 simplifies packing for the honeymoon!
The lace peplum is an accessory I fashioned to “dress-up and girly-out” the solid side of the dress.
I categorized this dress as intermediate simply because I adapted it to be reversible.
