Tartan Dress

Confession: Since I work primarily at home, I wear "loungwear" (pajama bottoms and a t-shirt) most of the time. But deciding maybe I should try not to be such a bum, I got some supersoft brushed cotton tartan fabric for a dress. (Don't want to sacrifice comfort for style.)

I altered Burda 7224 which I used to make my Bohemian Dress that I love. I lowered the waistline a couple inches since the original pattern fell in an awkward place, not empire and not at the natural waist. Also, had to adjust the underbust darts to pick up another few inches for a better fit. And I only had enough fabric for the sleeveless variation after fussy cutting the tartan.


  1. Looks super-comfy. Sometimes dressing up a little improves our mood even when we're alone.

  2. Tartan dresses always look a little punk to me, although yours is a very relaxed punk!
