BurdaStyle Designer Cascade Dress 05/2011

This isn't may usual style of dress!
However when I saw the pattern on the Burdastyle blog, my mind started digging through my fabric stash with a single-minded purpose.
I had more of this fabric left than I initially thought - Its a gloriously tacky synthetic (chiffon?), with lots of drape that I got from Darn Cheap Fabrics,  because - well it was darn cheap.
With some short torso adjustments, adding some lining to the bodice and skirt back, and chopping 30cm off the hem - She emerged in all her floral avian glory.


 The inside looks a bit funky, as I didn't line the front dress panels - I thought the drape would distort a bit and the pattern is soooo busy, it doesn't matter seeing the wrong side of the fabric.
I think this will be a good dress from the holidays!


  1. This dress is AMAZING! I'm extremely jealous!

    1. Thankyou!! I was so pleasantly surprised with how it came together ;)

  2. what a beautiful dress, love the fabric too!

  3. That's gorgeous!! That would totally be a dress fit for me and my weird tummy... I should remember the name of the type of dress :)
    Hope you are doing well and wishing you a Merry Christmas, happy holidays and an amazingly bubbly New Years Eve!!!
