@ lakaribane - Yes 44 is my normal size. Which is nice b/c it is the biggest "regular" size and the smallest "plus" so most patterns come in my size. I think you could get away with reducing the gathers. It is a bit billowy and I did not cut on the bias and it worked just fine. I added a belt beacuse I felt it needed a little shape to not look like a maternity dress. But the neckline fits awesome which is normally an issue for me. I have small shoulders. You should give it a try in muslin or something if you have a fabric you are afraid to cut ;) Good luck!

That Liberty of London Fabric is an awesome print, I can just see how soft the drape is. Really nice dress

Look great. I'm interested in this pattern a lot but worried about the shape. Is 44 your normal Burda size? I'm thinking of reducing the frong gathers and maybe making a belt, to define my waist a bit. Opinions? Another question : did you cut it on the bias? Because your motif is vertical and I was sure this was a bias dress.TIA!
