A flowery summer dress

Added Jun 10, 2014

Frontignan, France






Based on Burdastyle Poplin Dress 05/2013 #124.
I dropped the pockets, shortened the dress, and replaced the full back with straps.
The bodice is entirely lined and topstitched.
Since the V neck front was way too deep for wearing this dress anywhere besides the beach, I added a ruffled piece of white cotton eyelet supported by a band of white bias at the top to make it more work-compatible.
I had a lot of fitting issues (added bust darts because of the gaping armholes, took in a few cm at the waist and under the arms to get the dress to sit nicely…), and in the end I’m not entirely satisfied with the way the V neck sits on my chest (it kinds of gaps a little, and the straps get a little loose), but I like the dress anyway, because the fabric is so cute and cheering.

Material Notes

White flowery cotton for the dress and facings.
Bit of eyelet and white bias tape.




Garment Type
Cotton, Eyelet

    Lovely dress! I’m thinking of making this and have just made a prototype. I’ve realised the neckline is a bit low, and I like your solution. Thanks for sharing.

      Merci beaucoup! Je ne suis pas sûre de refaire ce patron, car j’ai passé beaucoup (trop) de temps à l’ajuster et à corriger ce qui n’allait pas… :-( Heureusement que le tissu était motivant!!! ;-)
