80's-ish Pleated Party Dress

Added Nov 25, 2009

Copenhagen, Denmark






This dress is based on a downloadable pattern (called Duftstars (?) that I found on burdafashion.com. The original pattern is ankle-length, which I thought looked a bit dowdy, so I shortened it. I had a lot of fun making it, especially because it’s quite uncomplicated. I I made it for New Year’s Eve this year and I think I’ll wear it :-)

Material Notes

Cotton blend, zipper, interfacing




Garment Type

    As I wrote in the description, the pattern is called ‘duftstars’ and you can download it from burdafashion.com. Here’s the link:http://www.burdafashion.com/en/Downloads/Premium/1333669-1413205-1622812.html It costs about 5 Euro, I think. Hope that helps :-)

    I am completely in love with this pattern. I admit, I’m not a fan of the fabric, but the dress is overall great. If only you could share the pattern, that would be great. i’m dreaming this in white, in red, in yellow….oh someone stop me!
