While Maddie is away, I’m going to share another Create This Look with you! Since she’s in Paris, I decided to choose a dress that would continue the Parisian theme. This week was not only inspired by Maddie’s trip, but also inspired by the Be Outside Dress in Delft from ModCloth.
I can imagine a beautiful Parisian lady enjoying a lovely picnic in a park wearing this dress. The fabric used to make the inspiration dress is a thicker cotton. I chose a lighter weight chiffon because of the print. If lined with our white poly cotton, the dress will look very similar.
The pattern I chose is a vintage inspired pattern by Butterick. It has a close fitting, lined bodice, contrast facings, flared skirt (cut on crosswise), and petticoat. I love the back detail too. It has two variations, but I recommend view A. It will work better with the chiffon.
