    No, you’re not supposed to cut down the dashed line. This line is just a marker to see how far in the coloured stripe will go (that’s the lining piece).
    As to attaching the hood: The hood (sorta) i…

    My take on the lovely Helena skirt! Love the pattern, very pretty and easy to do!
    I used the project to use up a bit of wool fabric and metal buttons I had left over, that’s the reason for the but…

    At fashion school, we got the assignment to “drape” paper dresses for different eras. Each group had a different time period to work with and I could convince my group to pick Rococo! Yay!

    Yes, you should have added seam allowance. You could however just join those two parts of lining you have by applying a ribbon or strip of fabric (place them edge to edge and put the ribbon along t…

    Thanks so much! Maybe you’d want to share the project? I’d really love to see how they turned out! They must look so cute :)

    Yes you can. The movie robes are actually completely lined in black in addition to the house colour at the opening and the sleeves.
    If you plan to do it that way, you should “substract” the coloure…

    Okay, so I’ll try to explain it real quick, however, if you don’t quite get it, I recommend either searching for a how-to either here on burdastyle or just on google or simply looking up the instru…

    No, I don’t have any pictures of the process, otherwise I would have put them in here.
    As to your question, I’m not quite sure what you mean by “other edge”. Can you give me the seam number?
    Or do…

    Would it be possible to enter with something I already made (and posted)? Like… only change its title? Or reupload it?

    Sleeve twice on fold means that you have to cut two sleeves (obviously), but the pattern piece in the drawing is only half the sleeve. So to not have a seam right on top of your sleeve you fold you…

    Yes, you do cut the back part on fold, but do not cut along the fold. And I woundn’t call it a triangle, it’s more of a trapezium ;)
    To your second question: The body of the robe will consist of 3…

    To be perfectly honest, I screwed up a bit when sewing the neckband, so I covered it up with a little bow ;)

    This shirt was inspired by a shirt I saw in a tiny little store in London when I was there. It also said “I make things” (yes, it does say that on my shirt even though you probably can barely make …

    It does make sense, but I do admit that my sketch isn’t very clear… I’m sorry.
    The drawing is two pattern parts in one. The front parts (which include the halfes of the hood) and the back parts….

    Oh, totally forgot to add that… it was no. 120 from issue 07/2010. It’s great, but it’s really on the small side… one really has to check the measurements.

    Actually, what you thought to be the back of the neck is the sleeve opening. The pattern piece drawn is one of 4 pieces that make up the robe, so it’s actually just half a sleeve opening. The line …

    Nope, you don’t cut the hood on fold. Actually, there is no separate hood part at all, the hood is attached to the front pieces and the lining pieces. Seams one and two are, so to say, the top and …

    The hood parts are attached to the front pieces and the lining pieces. So you don’t have to cut out any separate hood parts at all.
