Mini batik dress

I made this dress a few weeks ago but I hadn't had the opportunity to take photos of it yet. That's a shame because I like it a lot and wear it quite often. I took a Burda magazine pattern (the "Paris" dress from the 08/09 issue) and changed it a little because I only had a small yard of fabric -at first I wanted to make a bag out of it, I'm glad I waited^^. I shortened the skirt and the sleeves and I cut the back in two so that I could add a little volume to the skirt before attaching it to the bodice.

There are lovely, easy-to-make pleats at the front and my only regret is I didn't have enough fabric to sew a self-made belt.

  1. The dress looks really good on you and fabric is beautiful!
    I made a dress from this pattern too, but I'm not totally satisfied with it. It's not comfortable even though I wasn't making it tight. I changed back of the skirt too - it looked too flat.
