How much do you love this?????????????????? I love it so much!!!!! I’ve been wanting to make myself a Bella dress for a few months now (ever since I got the little size to test on my girls). I love it, I love it, I love it. It’s so fun and girly. This fabric is pretty awesome too though.
It’s very flared. I ended up cutting off two inches off the bottom so it isn’t even as flared as it should be. Next time, I will take the two inches out of the middle of the flare so it is even more full on the bottom.
I used a Fabric Mart scuba knit for this. I wanted something that would help hold the dress out so it had that fun flair shape. Unfortunately, they have already sold out of it. This dress is very easy to make. It’s a knit princess-seamed dress with hems/neck edge that you fold down and coverstitch.
Are you going to make one??? Are you ? In an ITY knit (like here) the flairs are a lot less noticeable. I love it both ways.
Let’s see, changes. I shortened it to above the knee which means I lopped off two inches. I also lowered the front neck by an inch. I can see more of these in my future.
Eep! I just realized I still need to do my July Burda Challenge! We just got back from fishing so I’m behind schedule. I actually made this dress before we went to camp but had no time for pictures or blogging.
