BurdaStyle member Casey Cartwright (aka: elegantmusings) made a fantastic variation of our dress pattern from The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook and we called on her expertise to give you a sneak peek at how her dress was done. Watch how she alters the skirt of the dress pattern and get inspired to grab a copy of The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook and try Casey’s variation for yourself!
