Birdy Maxi dress

I made this dress using a birdy fabric that I had bought some time ago but was quite precious about it. The challenge was just perfect – it made me brave enough to cut into the birds :-). I had bought the viscose jersey from B&M Fabrics in Leeds.

I wanted a simple pattern with few seam lines to maximise the impact of the birds. Enter Burda 06/2016 #101C dress. Here is the line drawing which shows the simplicity of this pattern.


The dress is meant to be a mini but I maxified it for full impact 🙂 Sewing it up was so fast and took less than an hour to sew up. I opted to sew a neckband for a t shirt look.

The dress is so comfortable and I love it.

I cant help but feel like lifting off and flying when wearing this dress. Thanks for this challenge Kat and Mel! No I need to go finish my Apron challenge make :-).

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Lovely! I had the same feeling about using my bird print, also. I like how you styled for the photo with bare feet and joyful movement. It emphasizes the carefree look of the fabric. Again, lovely!

  2. Lovely dress. I really like the print. This is a very encouraging post for me because I was just considering this pattern last night when I was looking for a nice simple pattern to make up quickly. Lovely. I think you will enjoy wearing this a lot.
