Let's go on a picnic dress

Made from the dress pattern in the Burdastyle Sewing Handbook, but changed it a bit and I love how it came out (: Can’t wait for summer to really come so I can wear it more.

    Cute dress! You did a very nice job. I didn’t realize the print was watermelons until I saw the close-up pic. Fun! :)

    I love the way you’ve changed the basic pattern. What mods did you do?

      I made the neckline lower and didn’t include the hole that was in the original pattern. I also made the armholes bigger and completely changed the skirt. The only other thing that I did was change where some of the seams were to make it fit better. Thank you so much (:
