Two dresses, each gathered at the waist, which according to the magazine, can also be worn separately. Pattern Sizing:
34 - 42 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I think so. Were the instructions easy to follow?
I found them confusing. I just did my own thing. Attached the facings in my usual manner to the neckline and armholes, made a casing for the elastic rather than zig-zagging over elastic and drawing it up (my elastic was just too wide!) and did rolled hems (rather than zig zag and trim). What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
My first experience of using a Burda Style magazine. Probably going to be my last. I found tracing the pattern too confusing and I don't have the patience for it. I do like the finished dresses though Fabric Used:
Under dress coral cotton dobby spot.
Overdress ditsy floral print cotton lawn. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Probably no to sewing it again. Hmmm...recommend...yes...if you have patience and incredible eyesight to follow the pattern sheet. Conclusion:
Very easy to wear, light, comfortable dresses. Easy to sew if you are not relying on the Buda instructions. More pics at my blog
