next up: white bamboo!

For this dress, I dug out a fabric bolt from under my work table.

I’ve always wanted to use this for something but find plain white too boring sometimes.

A crisp white shirt paired with jeans is great. A white t-shirt on a colorful skirt is fun.
Even a white shirt dress with lots of details and pockets works.

But what to do with plain white bamboo? Add texture – that’s what I did.

I had about 2ft (50cm) of this textured white fabric and always wondered WHAT to do with it:

Since I can always use a little more ‘fluff’ around my bust, I replaced the otherwise plain bodice of my pattern.

Before I cut out the pattern pieces, I sewed the ruffled fabric to the bamboo and then proceeded to cut the bodice. The skirt part is a simple folded square in which I cut the waist and then attached it to the bodice. For added fun, I used a strip of the ruffles on the neckline.

Again, this is a Burda pattern (they just fit me well!).

This way, I like my white dress.

All I need now, is SUN and WARMTH. (hey, that’s not too much to ask, is it??)

    So lovely! Plain white is fantastic! Maybe because of it’s simplicity. Accessories with white are smokin’!
