Whipped Butter

I've had this dress from Modcloth in my inspiration files for awhile... It's not available online anymore and was a little too expensive for me to justify buying when it was online, however, I been trying to figure out how to make it myself... I think I could use Burda 7460, the same pattern I used for my Halloween dress last year, as a base and maybe omit the diagonal strips of fabric on the front and just focus on the ruffles. The ivory is GORGEOUS but I'm a pale lady so I probably would have to pick a different color palette. Anyway, it will be on my "To Make" list!

Those ruffles look like they've got wire in them to give them shape a bit like that ribbon you can get with the wire in it...just a thought if cord doesn't cut it.

Good luck with this dress, can't wait to see it finished!

I hadn't thought about the wire! Thanks for the tip!
