My maxi summer dress

Added Aug 5, 2011

This is a dress I’ve made somewhere around the Easter holidays when I couldn’t wait for summer to start. I used a Burdastyle 6/2010 Chiffon maxi dress with “jeweled” neckline pattern with nice pleats at the front. I added some pockets at the sides because I just love pockets! My gorgeous sister is my model on the pictures.

Material Notes

Honestly, I don’t know what sort of material this is, but rather synthetic and definitely light. I love the oriental patterns on it and the blue-purple colors.

    The pleating detail in the front is subtly beautiful with this dark print, nicely done!
