Gathered Dress – Burdastyle 06/2015 #120B

This pattern was a satisfying sew, and the fabric easy to stitch with. My mum gave me her sarong so I stitched this dinky dress out of it. I didn’t have to think too much while sewing it, and I’m happy with it, although I was short in the hem region by about 10cm less than the amount required. It can ride up the back lol, but I like the v-back style a lot. I don’t mind the front gathers being pulled up if they do, as it gives an interesting knotted appearance. Location​: Apia

Material Notes

woven light cotton sarong with tropical floral print, iron on interfacing….




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual

    It was absolutely sweltering and a real scorcher on my holiday in a winterless pacific island, always sweating buckets; luckily the material was light and breathable. I personally like the short sleeved look a lot in this style of dress, and the v-neck and v-back, and the length is good for the heat. I hope I took enough photos lol.
