The Yarn Dress

Added Nov 10, 2013

Placentia, Calif...






I used Burdastyle’s 11/13 issue, pattern #124 to make this A Line shaped dress. I didn’t include the folded detail on the sleeve that was shown in the magazine or the detailing around the neckline. I just really loved the fabric and thought those details would get lost in all the color. This is actually 100% polyester but it looks like all sorts of yarn bound together.

Another super easy project and dress that will get lots of wear.

Material Notes

1.5 yard of polyester, thread




Fall, Winter

    This dress looks a lot better an you than on the Burda model. I would never have sewed this dress not seeing yours. Now I consider it! Great work and it fits you perfect. I love the fabric as well!

      Thanks Mary! I think the pattern’s silhouette in the magazine looked so simple it might not have looked like much. But that’s the beauty of it too, the fabric can really take center stage if you choose the right one. Sorry so late in my reply. I work two jobs…

      Thanks Liliv! The fabric colors make me happy. Like a box of crayons. Sorry for such a late reply. Just working a lot.
