    One extra note, after having done some research on the three different pattern variations included in the download, I’ve noticed that all these pieces are MEANT to be considerably oversized. They’re not supposed to be form fitting (with the exception of the button down hip yoke dress, where the hip yoke should technically be more or less form fitting). The idea is for the dresses/tunics to be very loose and comfortable. If you inspect the photos closely, you’ll notice that the tunic in comparison to the model is quite large.

    I dont have the directions for this particular pattern, but I managed to figure out the directions for the pin tuck minidress, which shares quite a few pattern pieces with this one (the main difference between this one and the minidress is that where the mini cuts off at the hipline and has a ruffled skirt, this one continues on in tunic form. basta)

    I plan on taking a whack at this one this evening. Will be flying blind (i.e. no instructions/directions) so wish me luck :D

    Holy Crow. This is so cute, but the directions are HORRIBLE. I consulted a friend who’s been sewing over 30 years, and she couldn’t figure out the directions. I pieced the button placket and gauntlets myself, because you just can’t follow the directions. They are not clear. Many things are left out, too, such as certain pattern pieces, how to gather at the gather lines, etc. The seam allowances are confusingly written in the directions, AND the smallest size is HUGE. I’ve had to move the shoulder seams up, take the sides in, on and on and on. It’s been over a month. I’m still not finished. It’ll be wicked cute in malibu pink lightweight linen with a super drape, but that’s no thanks to the pattern. Thank goodness I have a good eye! I’ve sent several emails to BurdaStyle asking to clarify, to no avail. I haven’t received any communication back. Good luck if you choose this pattern!

      oh no! I got very excited to make a beach coverup with this pattern, but your review has me a bit concerned. Do you have an estimate for how much too big the pattern was? The pieces do look huge and I’m trying to see if there is something I can do (without making a toile) to help before I get too far into the project. or perhaps I should choose a different pattern…

      Did you ever receive help from Burda or finish making it?
