This little outfit is the perfect in between season piece. I like wearing it with a turtleneck or a little cardigan if it is too cold, otherwise just bare for warmer times. The pleats are created so that if made in a lighter but stiffer material, the skirt will puff slightly. Try it in seersucker for the spring or, like our example, a colorful plaid wool which is perfect for late winter/early spring days.

Material Notes

Plaid wool, big plastic buttons, zipper

    This is made to fit a very small or larger bust. As a matter of fact, the top is made so that you could make it out of stretchy material, but if you want to make it tighter, make it out of a woven and you will see that it will fit an A cup. It is also easily adjustable on the sides and the mid bust seam. I am glad so many of you are liking it. Furthermore, we wanted to let you guys know that we are about to start linking to fabric sites, so that you guys are able to buy the fabrics we are using. This will not work with all but a lot of them. Thanks for posting that link Sabrina, feel free to email us too, whenever you find fabric that looks like one we used or that would work well for a garment. Thanks everybody for all the great responses!

    I agree, the fabric here really makes this dress great! I’m thinking “rainbow plaid” would be an appropriate search term. I’d cahnge the front to be a bit higher though, and the straps a little more inwards.

    Yeah I’m in love with that fabric too- the colors are so rich and gorgeous- any chance we could find out where it’s from/what brand it is?

    Does it work with A cup or Burdastyle team altered the pattern to fit her, I wonder… By the way, I LOVE the jumper!
