Burdastyle Asymmetric Colorblock Dress 2/2012, #117

Los Angeles, Cal...






This is the infamous colorblock dress from Burdastyle’s February 2012 issue. I have been collecting ponte fabrics for it since it’s release. This was my first Burdastyle pattern ever and can I just tell you?? I am a convert! This pattern was so excellently drafted and fit together so perfectly. I made this dress for my 30th birthday celebration. You can see many detailed pictures on my blog post at http://amityoriginals.blogspot.com/2012/12/awesome-birthday-dress.html as well as tips on making the pieces fit together well and my fun and sparkly makeup!

Material Notes

Chartreuse ponte, fuchsia ponte, black ponte roma, and houndstooth double knit




Spring, Summer, Fall
