I made this a couple of weeks ago and am just getting around to blogging about it. It’s from BurdaStyle magazine 04/2010 #113C and D. These are polo-style dresses that are great for warm spring and hot summer days.
These are some of my favorite things I’ve made from the magazine. I made the yellow striped dress first, then found instructions online to improve on the placket, so I made the blue dress the next day.
The blue is my personal favorite. I think the length is perfect for me. The pattern is designed for making a polo shirt with long or short sleeves, and the dresses in two lengths.
Once I figured out how to make the placket better, this was very easy to make.
Both are made from cotton knits. I can definitely see myself making the shirt or some other variation of the dress in the future!
