Twirling Cate

This dress is based on the Cate pattern. I wanted a casual summer dress so I used silk jersey. I changed the straps and simplified the skirt, it’s just a tube of fabric gathered at the top. It’s very confortable to wear and twirling around in it is so much fun!

Material Notes

Silk jersey




Garment Type


Burdastyle for the lovely pattern

    Your top bit looks amazing! I’ve just made my own Cate – following the instructions was impossible, so I had to piece it together myself and play it by ear. Your version seems far more sensible and looks better than the original! Plus: the straps don’t seem to slip off your shoulders in your version… which I had seen this earlier!

    That’s a gorgeous take on the pattern. And, as a side note, you have very pretty hair

    Thank you all for your comments! hannnc: I didn’t find the pattern hard at all. I think it depends on the fabric. If I had made the dress in chiffon, like the original one, it would’ve been much more work. But because I used jersey, I didn’t need zipper, interfacing or boning. And I didn’t have to line the skirt either. It was pretty quick to make.

    super cute! this looks exactly like a dress i wanted to get at forever21 but it just sucked, when i tried it on (it was strapless). your creation here inspires me to make it myself!

    you’ve made this dress suit casual very well!! i like it :) did you find this pattern was ‘hard’ as it suggests? the word hard is scaring me off, however, i usually can tackle tricky situations after playing with it for a while..
