Summer is flowers and polka dots

This is a dress I made for my kid sister’s wedding. I drafted the pattern from my own block, but got inspired by the ruffles on the Burda dress 10/2010 Full skirted dress with cut-out bustline, but I changed that to pleats. The pleats go all the way to the centre back. The back is nothing special, but I prick stitched the zipper – I love the outcome of that!

Material Notes

100 % cotton, lined skirt




Garment Type


Burda 10/2010

    Gosh! You have some amazing dresses on here. I obvs haven’t been looking at Burdastyle enough. This dress is beautiful. Love how you’ve styled it with the red shoes and little case. Just divine!

    The whole of this is just darling! The print, the silhouette, everything!

    I most especially love the neckline on it!

    The colors are awesome, and your lips and pearls are equally charming.

    Love your dress: Great retro design, fabric, and construction. Nice modification too to the classic sweetheart neckline. Great dress.
