My Azalea Dress!

I downloaded it from Burda Style last week & have been looking for the perfect fabric for it since!  Well if you saw my Wal-mart post I got it finally :). Anyways it is a FREE downloadable pattern… but it does print on 45 pieces of paper, 40 or which you have to cut out & tape together… but it was worth it!  The pattern is for Euro sizes 34-46 which is 4-16 US I think.  Here is the direct link to the Azalea Dress Pattern.

SOOO I did do things a little differently… I used a knit instead of woven so I was able to leave out the zipper because it stretches right over my head!  I also LOVE the way the poly falls… its light but has enough weight to drape.  Well here are the pictures!  I still need to hem the bottom but my serger looper thread broke & I’m not dealing with it right now lol.  Be warned I am MUCH larger then my model so the back shot looks a little wonky.  I promise real shots soon.

Cost to make this dress… 3.5 yards of fabric at $2 a yard plus 8.4% tax… $7.59 for a great dress!
