Burda 05-2010-104

I was thrilled to find Allison's review (could she be any cuter in that dress?)

I was even more thrilled because I have that issue. I just traced it and am adding seam allowances.

What has me stumped is the V neck. The front is placed on the fold. The directions say to cut a bias strip to use in finishing the neckline. I'm using 1/4" seam allowances (but I'm willing to change that) and am wondering if I just add 1/4" along the neckline edge. (That would make the portion on the fold 1/4" more right?)

I'm using a sheer 'burn out" knit that I picked up from Fabric Mart a while back at $1 a yard for the muslin fabric in case that matters.

gosh I had no idea posting the technical drawing would come across so large!

Should I leave it or just link to it?

I should add that the dress calls for a lining; the tunic (which is what I'm making) doesn't.

Add 1/4" all along the "V" from the shoulder right down to the fold . There's usually a bit of a curve with most V's but if it's straight it's easier to do with a clear quilting ruler. HTH

It does help - I'm guessing I'll clip the V itself almost to the stitching line.

That's another good thing about sewing a muslin. You get a practice run!

Thanks Debbie.

If you want to make the image smaller, change the 1600 (in the link info.) to something smaller, like 800 or 600. The 800 and 600 versions look like this... Hope that helps.
