Purple Ruffle Dress

I made a dress! I found this great dress made by a member of BurdaStyle here which inspired me to make one just like it. I found jersey in almost exactly the same colour (not because I'm a sewing stalker or anything) and set out to make my own pattern for it because she did too (I remind you again I'm totally not stalking). My neckline ended up a little differently because I wanted to do a wide ruffle to completely cover the straps of the dress. This was solely because I had run out of any more fabric to edge the armholes and so left them raw. And here you have it my first comfy summer dress. Hooray!


  1. It looks great - I'm sure you'll get heaps of wear out of it for summer!

  2. Great colour and great neckline!
