4 and counting…..Burda Style 10/2012 #118


In case you didn’t already know, this is a go-to pattern for me!  I have posted about this dress hereand here.  And if you look at this post and scroll down you’ll see it (in Fireberry Red Stretch Silk) again here.  So by my count this is the fourth dress and probably not my last version.  I’m thinking I need to do a top and probably a maxi dress, too.  The fabric for this dress is Summer Blues from my store Sew Much Fabric.  All of the construction and alterations for this pattern were mentioned in previous reviews so I won’t rehash them here.

Whenever I’m short on time and need a dress I can “sew-n-go” I turn to this pattern.  Do you have a “sew-n-go” pattern?

    That is a very elegant dress, as are all your other versions (I've just had a look at them). Burda seems to have a touch of sophistication that some of the other pattern brands do not have.

    Gorgeous dress no matter what fabric you use. I see why it's your go to. I haven't decided on a go to pattern yet. I'll have to narrow that down.

    Thank you Sarah Liz. Burda seems to work for my body type even though the directions cause me a lot of "wailing and gnashing of my teeth"! :)Thank you Andrea!

    Nice, simple, but elegant dress. I agree Burda can be challenging, but it is worth it!
