Pattern Review: Burda Style
Prewash: Cold water /delicate cycle
Dry on perma press
There was no shrinkage.
Alterations: I did a 1″ full bust adjustment
Construction Details: I didn’t use a zipper and eliminated the neckline facing
because it caused the neck edge to be too thick. Instead I fused a 5/8″
wide strip of interfacing along the neckline.
Fold the edge to the inside and clip close to the shoulder
seam then topstitch in place.
So if you need a dress for a luncheon and an
afternoon wedding this month (like I do) I think this
pattern is a great option.
1) This dress goes together fast. Even faster if you use a knit.
2) I like that it has long sleeves. The weather can be
all over the place this time of year.
3) Love the side ruching and cowl neckline which is on trend.
This fabric also comes in Amber.
