Description

Women’s dress sewing pattern available for download. Available in various sizes and is produced by burda style magazine.

This stylish dress commands attention with its gathered sleeves, open square neckline and empire waist. The bodice nips in just below the bust and is met by a flared knee-length skirt. The dramatic box pleat at the center front draws the eye up and down, making the figure appear longer and leaner.

This pattern is from Holiday Style collection.

    The puffy sleeves do not excite me. The square neckline is cut so close to the shoulders that my bra straps would show. Please make some better designs, Burda!
