Les Copains Denim Dress, DIY


This week’s post should have happened last week,
but something about relocating my little family of six to another home in another state took high priority.

While I was in Las Veags visiting family, I was able to whip up this most amazing dress!
That’s right, I take my sewing machine with me on vacay! I might have issues….

But seriously, this Les Copains inspired denim dress has been on my to do list for quite sometime,
the long sleeve, the pleats, the high neck is dreamy except for that $595 price tag – yikes!

I’m not sure why I dragged my feet with this project, but it’s a great staple to add to your fall wardrobe!

Denim is here to stay for the upcoming fall season.

To recreate your own verison of this Les Copains Denim Dress, here’s what you need to do:

  • Get pattern. I used Burda 7034.
  • Buy denim fabric according to pattern requirements.
  • ALTER sleeve pattern. Create new sleeve hem right above the elbow dart, discard the rest of the sleeve.
  • Continue to sew pattern according to pattern instructions.

My favorite part about this Burda Pattern are the pockets and the length,
which makes it the perfect option for an everyday look!

    Riva! Amazing as always! I have been wanting to do a denim dress but could not decide on a pattern to use!
    This one is gorgeous and beautiful on you!
    I have been looking for denim but it all seems a little too stiff for this dress. Could you let me know the weight of the denim u used and possibly the fabric content??! Thanks so Much!!

    […] If you want to take it a step further, you can make yourself a dress, too! I took one of my favorite patterns that I used HERE and HERE, (Burda Pattern 6848) ditched the sleeves, reconstructed the armhole so it would cover a little more of my shoulder and have the cap sleeve vibe, and then added he hearts. I thought it would also look really cool on the Denim dress I made last fall, HERE. […]
