While the border print dress of my last post may actually be the most beautiful dress I made this summer I do believe this one is the most fun, because:
And lookit, another border print!
Funnily enough, while the dress has a decidedly vintage kind of look to it, there’s nothing vintage here at all! The pattern is a bodice from one of my Burda magazines that I altered to have the cap shoulders (I just realized I don’t know the proper term for this, well that’s new!) and the skirt is just a rectangular length of the fabric knife pleated into the waist.
I added flat piping again, this time to the seams of the midriff band.

And while this pair of shoes wasn’t purchased specifically for this dress, it is the one they seem to go with best, and in coral suede they are equally impractical as the lavender ones. But I’m not sorry, with the lavender, corals, aquas and ivories my summer shoe collection is starting to make me think of a modernized version of this and I love it!
And the dress insides:
Have you ever seen someone else’s fabric and decided that you just had to have it too?
