It is not a secret – I love floral prints, and who doesn’t? But as of the moment this trend is crossing the line from being cute and feminine to being overused. Florals are great, but I would like to see it used in accents and details, rather than a full length dress in big colorful flowers. I guess I am just craving something new, and there is nothing wrong with that… I hope 🙂
This dress represents a combination of fresh summer palette together with calm floral print, and just a touch of accessories. It is fresh and breezy, easy to wear!
Materials: lemon yellow crepe, floral silk, invisible zipper
Pattern: bodice part is drafted off the Burda’s balloon dress and straps added, skirt part is self drafted using 3 different fabric panels.
What I love is that there is nothing difficult about this dress, but at the same time there is some certain charm and glow!
I actually made another crop top out of this floral fabric, which in fact was a skirt prior that. You can see it clearly from these pictures. For some reason I lost my love towards this skirt and remade it successfully into something useful 🙂
