Summer Bubble Dress

May 13, 2011 at 9:43 pm 4 comments

Here she is just a day after asking for a new dress.  After all, since Isabel got a new dress, she felt deserving of her own.  Who was I to argue?  This is a very simple shift dress  (Burda 9544) with a few added bottom seam darts which give the bottom a slight bubble effect.  She was more than happy with it and the fabric really suits her.  Check out the freckles!

It looks like I spent a lot of time figuring out how to place the print so that it looks like a necklace, but it really was just a happy accident.  I have to say how happy all of this garment sewing is making me.  I love how quickly these projects come together, and how they showcase the fabrics I love.  I especially love how I can make something pretty for someone I love.

    Cute photos!
    Great choice of fabric. It truly compliments her colouring, and the print is a great 60’s retro design.

    Really lovely dress, Tina. Suits her to a t, both shape and colours!

    Great job! I just got this pattern and I haven’t used a sewing machine or made any clothing since I was 13 so that’s 27 years. I hope I can do it and it doesn’t come out too wonky. I was hoping there’d be a tutorial somewhere because this dress is very simple and I’m back to beginner.
