I am so glad to read honest reviews of this dress! Sorry for your sewing experience but thanks for the warning. I'm so glad you can salvage the fabric.

Having attempted a Burda Tall or two in the past, I'm convinced that "Tall" is really just a Plus pattern, as they've all been voluminous. But having read your review, I'm now totally perplexed at their sizing, as the top seems tiny! I really don't understand, as the regular and petite Burda sizing is just so damned good! But thank you for your honest review, I find negative results just as helpful as glowing ones!

I'm glad you can salvage the silk twill. Your sewing artistry is right up there at the top and I trust you implicitly. Sorry about the unfortunate experience and dress. Bad, Burda, bad! Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Have to agree, and thank you for review to forewarn the rest of us who could have found the line drawing is kind of intriguing and I can understand you wanting to try it. I'm glad you can rescue that lovely fabric for something better!
