Polka Dots and Rubber Chickens

I made this dress a few months ago. I wanted to wait until I had some nice (outdoor) pics of it but I have realised if I think like that nothing will ever get uploaded!

I modified Burda pattern 7831 - it is a blouse pattern - a lot to make this. I changed the front completely - I got rid of the darts and made it a wrap front. I got rid of the collar too. I used the sleeve pattern pieces but instead of adding elastic in a casing I pleated them a little at the hem. The skirt is just three trapezoids. I just learnt (relearnt? It's been so long since I did geometry) that word. I thought they were called trapezes but then I googled it....

It is a very light, see though blue polka dot fabric. In Hungarian it's called something like muslin but I don't think it is what people generally think of as muslin....

I made a white under dress to wear with it using the bodice of my all-time favourite pattern, Burda 7829, with a circle skirt attached.


  1. I love it! The fabric looks so fragile and light and I think it matches with the pattern splendidly!

  2. gorgeous! I love the fabric and the style suits you perfectly. Great work!

  3. As usual Jodi, your dress looks awesome.
