purple/green halter dress

Added May 18, 2008

Los Angeles, Cal...






You can never have too many summer dresses, so I made this one by altering Built By Wendy #3835. The original dress had raglan sleeves, so by omitting them, I got this pretty halter neck! I also really love the obi belts I’ve been seeing here on Burdastyle (especially the ones by lalalalayla) so I made a matching one for this dress. Purple and green is one of my fave color combinations, so I was glad to find the same print in both colors. Very happy with the end result!

Material Notes

Cotton/lycra blend. Marie Kelzer designs.

    You’ve got a great eye for colour. I’ve got this pattern I would never have thought of making it with out the sleeves, it looks fantastic.

    Beautiful dress, and Obi belt matches it perfectly! And the color combination… I have no words to express its beauty! Would you mind if I steal your idea, and make a similar dress?
