Sean Skirt on Burda 7514 body

I needed to make a bridesmaid dress for a wedding, and I was having trouble getting inspired until I saw the Sean skirt. I mated the two patterns together by matching at the natural waist, and then I extended the line of the Sean skirt so that it was the length of the dress pattern (I found the skirt way too short as written.) After that, I cut an extra layer of tiers – using the middle tier pattern cut to about 1" bigger on all sides, and pleated it with a center pleat until the six pleats were the width I needed them to be to tile the skirt. Then I pinned, pinned, pinned, pinned pinned, and VOILA!

    very pretty. I love it in the Silk Dupioni, it adds a nice structure to the ruffles. It’s a great bridesmaid dress too, since it could easily be worn to a party again.

    Lovely! I love the color and I love the result. I think it looks better in your fabric than the originally used fabric for this pattern!
