Pretty yellow dress

Dunedin, New Zea...






Dress I made to wear to a wedding. Straight out of Burda Style magazine 07-2010, but I pretty much just ignored the instructions coz it suggested all these different fabrics and layers and it all got a bit too confusing! The jersey is the bottom layer, with a gathered layer of voile on top. Anyhow it turned out perfectly with no fitting issues, probably due to using a stretch fabric. It’s so nice not having to make alterations to a pattern every once in a while!

Material Notes

Jersey, cotton voile




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Romantic
Chiffon, Cotton, Knits/Jersey, Silk, Tulle

    NICE WORK… I’m sure you got many compliments!! I can’t stand reading those instructions, I swear I spend more time reading the instructions than total time making the actual garment!
