Pattern Review

Burda WOF 7/2005
I bought the coordinating fabrics for this pattern from last summer and I am glad I was able to make it this year. The printed poplin has stretch, the turquoise doesn't.
This is the illustrated course for this issue which is always a nice plus. This is one of those patterns where it pays to mark your sewing lines especially on all those corners, it just makes sewing easier. This is an unlined design and I wanted to keep it that way, since this is suppose to be a casual summer dress. The facings were very neatly designed, neckline and underarm all in one. I stitched in the ditch from the front to keep the facings down in addition to tacking it on the sideseam.
I raised the neckline about an inch because it was too low for daily wear, there is no gaping which might have to do with me raising the neckline. Later I will post a picture of me wearing it so that you can see the fit.
I really like this dress and I'm sure I'll make it again, it will even look great in a solid because all the seaming gives a great fit.


  1. Great fabric choice, it's really cute!!
