TR Dress with Flared Top!

This was a great challenge!

I started with drawing triangles on the front part, cut them in a double layer and made them flary.

Then I sew the triangles to the top.

I made the drawings where the stripes should stay and cut the pattern apart.

I started sewing one and one stripes at the time, and as it was "growing" 
I could see the flared part coming through.

The front part is finished, and you can open the flared part 
and see the stripes underneath the triangles as well.

I wanted to make a back-part to match the stripes for the front part as well.

I have used a hi-low skirt pattern from BurdaStyle for the dress.

Linen is a great choice of fabric. This is a combination of linen and viscose.


  1. Wonderful dress! So often TR exercises, while fun, often result in something that is not very wearable. Your dress at first glance has graphic black and white stripes in a flattering design. Upon looking closer , one sees the unique and interesting way the ruffles are incorporated in the stripes.

    1. Thanks Audrey! you're right, TR project are Fun, but of course it's much nicer if you can make a garment that really wearable :)
