D.I.Y with Nichelle B.

D.I.Y Button Up Dress

Hi Loves!

Welcome Back! So y’all know ever since I made my first button up I’ve been addicted. I really love the versatility of button ups. I had this cotton and this picture saved in my phone for quite some time. So I decided to recreate it! This is the original version, I saw it on IG first I believe.

So I wanted to do something very similar. Only difference is, my ruffle is a bit shorter and mines has short sleeves. I’m so happy and pleased with the outcome of this dress. I mentioned I wanted to make some more chill garments so this is definitely one I could see myself wearing dressing up or down. As I mentioned in my last post about patten hacking adding a ruffle hem or an uneven hem to a dress can give it an instant upgrade. In this case, (besides making the dress oversized) the only other modifications I made were an uneven hem and a ruffle. EASYYY! I love this dress.

Simplicity 8416 and Vogue 8027 are the pattens I combined to achieve this look. What do y’all think?
