Do I look scaly in this?

A very very basic dress. My first handmade piece of clothing worthy to be posted up on burdastyle. I used no pattern for this one, and learnt a lot in the process of making it! I completely adore the scale-esque print on the fabric, and due to this I purchased about twice the amount I needed. Oh, and excuse my posing and my terrible camera.

Material Notes

lightweight cotton, zipper, bias binding




Garment Type

    I love this, the shape and farbic are amazing. I want to make something similar, but because I’m…shall we say, blessed in the chest department….it’s so difficult to make a shift dress with no pattern! Anyway, good job!

      well, the beauty of sewing is that you can adjust anything to fit your body, as opposed to buying clothes from the store and not feeling qutie right in them. i hope you find a way to make a shift dress that suits you
