ruffle dress

Seattle, Washing...






I made this dress to wear to a wedding, very fast to sew up and very fun to wear!

excuse the wrinkles, this is after wearing all day.

I used new simplicity pattern 2497, only changes i made were to omit the pockets and I fully lined it.

Material Notes

black bamboo voile, gorgeous but wrinkles easily




Garment Type

    Agreement with all of the above comments! GORGEOUS+OSIOH! I don’t know where you took the photos but the landscaping is gorgeous also (the Japanese maple and ground cover is so saturated) works so well with your outfit. Beautiful!

    Great job on the dress, the ruffle detail is both eye catching and sophisticated. Hope some people give you complements on it at the wedding.

    OMG, i was looking at this exact pattern this morning for a wedding i have to go to in Oct. was it super comfy? i was thinking of using cotton sateen because of my skin sensitivity to certain materials.

    Amazing! I couldn’t help noticing you live in Seattle, where I’m going to move next year. I hear there’s a big sewing community there. True?

    Ah, I just love this. So gorgeous, so stylish. And bamboo voile sounds like a great fabric. I have been eyeing off this pattern and I think I will be buying after seeing this.
