Lydia variation 2 dress

Portland, Maine,...






I modified variation 2 of the Lydia pattern to make it a dress. I used facing on the neck and armholes, since I didn’t have any rib knit. I am so happy to finally finish a BurdaStyle pattern! More to come!

thank you burdastyle!

    I really love the buttons you added to the shoulder. Did you sew in a zipper, too? Because I hate to sew in zippers and the buttons look like an alternative =)

      I hate zippers too! Projects involving zippers discourage me…and so I did not use one here :)

    thanks! I wanted to wear it to school the next day, so I was sewing the buttons while watching Lost on tv!!! p.s. sorry about the duplicate pictures! I can’t seem to get rid of them…
