Party dress in bubblegum pink

Leicestershire, ...






I was inspired to make this dress when I saw Paola Setolier’s version, and when I looked at the Burda description, it said it suited those with smaller busts. Cool!

I bought this lovely jersey fabric in Barbados last year, and I’ve been wondering what kind of dress to make with it. So, it’s thanks to Paola that I decided on this one, although it had to be much shorter as I didn’t have enough fabric to make it as a maxi.

It’s an easy make, but I didn’t bother with a zip or elastic across the back, and I only lined the bust and the top of the back to the same depth as the bust pieces.

I’m only going to wear this on holiday, I think, because you really need a tan to pull it off!

    Oh wow, it looks really great, in one of my favourite color :)! Actually I am not wearing mine so often, I should try a shorter version too for everyday life…

      Ha ha, thank you. Yes you should, although you do need to be quite brave to wear it in the daytime in everyday life!

      Thank you so much, Chula. And yes I will because I’ll wear it on holiday in Barbados in November. And you know exactly what it’s like in the Caribbean – every night is a party!!! x

      Oh, I bet! The people, the weather, the food, the cocktails, the rum, the beaches, the sea, the turtles, the music, the palm trees and the soothing clickety tree frogs…! :))

    Lovely dress, the fit is perfect and I think a shorter version can be very useful.

      Yes, I agree with you there – a bit more practical, for sure. Thank you for your kind words!
