Were the instructions easy to follow?
These Burda Style patterns are fantastic easy to follow and a very easy to construct. I was amazed at how nicely it all came together for this dress.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved everything about this dress. The peter pan collar is really great (hopefully you can see it in the photos on my blog as its the same colour as the dress), and so easy to construct onto the dress. There are some really cute pleats on the front and back. I keep finding myself going to put my hands in my pockets (which aren't there) so maybe next time I might add some pockets. This dress also looks nice with or without a belt!
Stretch cotton. I tried to add a lining for the skirt from a plain lightweight polyester but because the outside was a stretch material the lining ended up being smaller and didn't match the skirt. So I left it off and it still turned out fine.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No pattern alterations, only to add pockets on the next versions would be cute.
I cut sizing 12 and it worked out perfectly.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely sew this version again and hopefully sometime soon! It ended up being a flattering style to suit my body shape and a perfect dress for work.
