Ruffle Front inspired by Phoebe Couture

Kingston, Jamaica






This black and white ruffle front lined dress have side seams, three ruffles at front and exposed metal zipper

The inspiration is from McCall 6518 and I modified it a bit. Instead of a straight skirt I turn it into a full skirt and use gathers at the waist. I did not use any ribbon because I could not get any Petersham ribbon, instead I was getting one that frays easily. I used a yellow zipper to give it a little pop at the back. I also change the ruffles from single layer ruffles that would show on the wrong side and completely lined it. So happy I did that because the material was rather thin. I added a little cap sleeve because I was wearing it to church. Really wanted to look modest.

I love the style and I am planning to make it again just like the original. I love my version too…it looks quite lovely. :-)

What do u think?

    It’s perfect!! The sleeves are cute, the doubled ruffle looks very polished and I like the yellow details on your zipper and on your shoes.
