burda wrap dress 12/2012

Antrim, Co Antri...






hi, i wanted to make this dress as soon as i saw it in the dec issue. its quite easy to do and i love how it looks. i choose a patterned fabric? probably not a wise decision with the wrap but then i love going against the norm. i think it turned out rather well considering i added full lining and downsized it.. i found it run big and i’m no skinny minny especially after xmas and new year lol. i have made another in sequins but my sewing machines have a huge problem with sequins so its still waiting on getting finished.

fizz my cat likes to help when i’m cutting out or tracing by wreaking everything. hope you see this chula 123 lol xx

Material Notes

cotton based jersey fabric and the same for the lining




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Evening Wear
Knits/Jersey, Lace/Sequins
