I want to wear this dress everyday. Like... Every. Day. I think I wore it three days this week and it's only Wednesday.... true story.
After searching long and hard for this dress... I had no luck finding it so I decided to remake it. Of course I couldn't make an exact replica because I didn't have any of that beautiful green fabric left in my stash. I did however have some of this coral and white geometric print that I love. Hooray for the stash again!!
I tend to think that a bold geometric print like this one needs a pattern that has fewer pieces to allow the print to shine. I like this Burda pattern for that reason. It has minimal design elements yet comes across as quite expensive looking. Chic and simple. Sometimes we think that the more "bells and whistles" a garment has the better, when really, all that fuss and fluff can leave it looking cheap. Especially if the fabric is cheap to start with.... So I say, if the fabric is cheap (as is the case here)...at least make sure that the design isn't.
Pattern: Burda 7378
Fabric Used: A geometric polyester print that wears like a dream and washes well too.
Instructions: This dress is quite simple to make. I did change the construction process a bit by attaching the facings and shoulders, then pulling them through before sewing the side seams. You can read more about this process to give a neater finish to a sleeveless garment here.
Changes I made: I didn't make any design changes to this one. Love it as is!
These days I am living in my dresses...they are so easy to wear. What is your go to uniform during the summer months?
