I used only the inner-layer pattern for this dress. It turned out better than I expected.

cotton and cotton blend





burda style

    Hi – you have inspired me to do the Azalea without the upper skirt as well. I notice that yours is quite narrow in width – did you take it in on the side seams? Great dress, by the way!

    Sorry stacey for not writting back to you sooner. I have not check burda for several days. For inner layer, it really does not require more than 1 and 1/2 yards of fabric. But for both layers, you might need less than 3 and half yards depending on the width and how you cut the fabric. I would also suggest alter the pattern a bit below the waist so that it will fot better(esp. for knit fabric).

    so cute! how much fabric did you need when you only used one layer? please write back on my wall! i bought 2 1/2 yards of fabric hoping to do both layers of the dress, but i dont know if its enough!

    It turned out really well. A very good variation of Azalea.

    No, I did not use zipper for this dress as the fabric is elastic

    hey this is nice :D i was thinking of doing the azalea too… did you use the zipper at all or is the fabric little bit elastic?

    Looks a million times better than the original pattern. Great job.

    Wow, that gives the Azalea dress a completely other look which is great! Like the version with the belt the most :) Good job!
