Create This Look! Debut Dance-Off Dress

Good Morning & Welcome to our second installation of Create This Look brought to you by Caitlin from The Fabric Market! This time my inspiration was the “Debut Dance-Off Dress In Floral” from ModCloth. This dress is so pretty. I love vibrant the colors in the chiffon.

The pattern I chose for this dress is S2250 by Simplicity. I couldn’t find a pattern that had a scalloped sweetheart neckline, but I think the draping bodice detail makes up for it. I recommend using View B.

I picked out three different fabrics for you to create this dress. The first is a beautiful floral lightweight polyester. The inspiration dress uses chiffon, but the closest print we have is this floral poly. The colors are almost as vibrant & the best part is…no lining!

The second fabric is the lace for the bodice. I chose a very pretty polyester floral knit lace. I hope the pictures do it justice. 

Since the lace is sheer, the third fabric I mentioned is an Ivory Poly/Cotton. The Poly/Cotton will also give you a nice stable base to drape the lace over. Then just add a belt & some accessories & your done!

Also try using this combination of fabrics to create this dress:


I hope you’ve been inspired by this look! It sure was fun to put together! Tune in to our blog on, every Monday to see the next all new look; and please post pictures of what you’ve made on our FacebookBlog, & follow us on Pinterest. Have A Great Week! Thank You Caroline! You’re The Best!

  1. I think you should reconsider the choice of patterns. I bought this pattern because it was very cute. However, if one reads the Pattern Review entries concerning this pattern, sewing and even fitting it is a somewhat difficult and frustrating endeavour:

    54 reviews and very few straight out recommend or highly recommend the pattern because of the bodice and bodice lining particuliarities.

    I would suggest instead going with M7124’s bodice and adding scalops and spaghetti straps:

    I really like the green/blue fabric. Do you know where we can get it and the names?

    1. Hi Gina,
      The fabric from the ModCloth dress? I have no idea how you’d figure that out – sorry! The links to the other fabric are in the post. Good luck!
