Burda 7364




I continue sewing for summer I guess I'm not ready to let it go yet. I bought this pattern last year but didn't get around to making it and now I was inspired to use leftover from another Burda dress and an ITY knit that I purchased during NY PR weekend.




I love how easy to wear this dress is. I inserted elastic at the waist instead of the elastic/cord combination that the pattern instructs you to do.

I have plans to make up the cardigan also.

I also took some ease off the bodice since when I tried it on there was just too much around the armhole; if you look at the picture that it's how it is designed but I didn't like it on me like that.


I also raised the neckline almost an inch.

Pattern matching, not perfect but close enough ;-)

  1. Me gusta mucho más tu versión que la de Burda. El estampado de la parte de arriba me encanta. La semana pasada compré punto con un dibujo similar, lo guardaré para el año que viene (el hombre del tiempo dice que bajarán las temperaturas y espero que acierte)
