My flowery convertible dress

Added Aug 3, 2008

by polychromatin

Halle, Germany






After so many did this dress I also wanted to have one. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough fabric, so I had to change the dress a little bit. I made the dress shorter and high-waisted, my straps are a little bit shorter than intended and the waistband is longer. Next time I would use a not so slippery fabric, because I have to fix the waistband with safety pins, otherwise it would slip down without me noticing it :D
Overall a great simple dress with a lot of possibilities to change.

Material Notes

very stretchy and slippery viscose jersey

    The print is greeeaat! Nothing can really beat red, black and white together. Reminds me of Oscar de la Renta

    I like it too. And it so in fashion with these black stockings (I hope this is right in English) It’s a trendy dress for the last month of summer! Cool!

    the convertible dress is in my mind for a long while, but I was not sure to make it. I wasn´t really confident from this pattern and if it´s really my style and if I can make any alterations and ….

    but now I see your version with a higher waist and shortend and I must changed my mind! your alterations are great. I think it´s more my style and it will suits me better.

    I´m sure I will give it a try next summer. great job and thanks for inspiring me :)!
