Make it a double

This is The Burda 8836 which is a rather pretty dress with double layered skirt and flounces on the plunging neckline. I normally avoid flounces and frills, but sewing is about so much more than what you feel comfortable in.

Material Notes

Sewn in teal polyester, this dress is suitable for so many fabrics and combinations. It would be great with chiffon or organza as the outer skirt layer. As it stands mine doesn’t really give a good account of the fact there are two layers to the skirt. I’m likely to make this again, but definitely would do more fitting to improve coverage and bust fit, or just start with a smaller size!
