Blue Bodice Ruffle Dress





Introduction: Blue Bodice Ruffle Dress

About: I love to sew.

I made this over a month ago before I could document the steps for this dress.  I was inspired by a dress I saw in a magazine that I really liked.

The whole dress is lined and there is a zipper on the side.  I really wanted a bodice with strong straps so I wouldn't feel self-conscious about it falling down. The skirt was just cutting long strips of chiffon and sewing it onto a lining for a tiered effect.

I wish I'd taken photos of the process so I could share it with you.  Thanks for checking it out!

    A pattern that you can use is found in Burdastyle magazine's 4/2011 issue pattern 110a. I changed up the bodice so I wouldn't look pregnant. i hope this helps!

    Hi, the measurements were 32b for the bust area, 25 for the waist and 33 for the hips. I have to go back home and find the correct date issue for the Burdastyle pattern that inspired this. I will get back to you asap.

    Thank you! I struggled with this dress because it's chiffon and I'd never sewn with it before.

    I have loads of other projects on Just type the name Zsyzu in the search engine and you'll find this and my other stuff too.
