    I’m not 100% sure if the graphic’s proportions are correct. I didn’t really pay attention to that when I made it. But the angles and the sleevecurves should be about right.
    As for the blue lines, t…

    Hi! Die Lösung war ganz einfach ein sehr günstiger, hautfarbener C&A-Multiway-BH. Da sind solche Verlängerungsteile dabei, die man hinten an der Schließe einhakt und dann über den unteren Rücken kr…

    Originally I planned to wear this dress for Christmas. That didn’t quite work out because it didn’t really fit me. Usually I don’t need to make toiles for burdapatterns (this one is from burdamagaz…

    “Neaten” means to finish the seam. Either by folding the fabric twice and stitching, by zig-zagging the edge or whatever you like. Basically it’s making sure the fabric won’t come apart and it look…

    First: Have a look at the first comment/question I answered for this step.
    Basically you attach the lining of the hood like any other lining. You sew it on, right side on right side (for this you h…

    I don’t think you’d have to adjust it too much. The lenght, shoulders and sleeves you can just adjust anyway as is pointed out in my sketch.

    Sure there is. But you do have to keep at least the topmost part of the front lining stripe, because it folds over. That’s the kind of “collar” you can see in the respective house’s colour.
    If you…

    Yours looks sooo much better than the one in burdastyle! I didn’t like that pattern at all in the magazine, but I adore your version :)

    Right side of the fabric on right side of the fabric. Right side being the one that is supposed to be the visible one.

    You’re right, the back is a v-neck. This v-neck is where the hood will be attached :)

    Another 50s inspired dress. When I was out fabric shopping, this one just called to me and told me to make a vintage dress out of it. Yes, fabric does that to me.

    Well first of all there aren’t really “hood pieces”, they’re actually attached to the front pieces. If you accidentally cut them out on their own, attach them to the front pieces first.
    Then, as yo…

    No, not all the parts are on fold. Only the back (=the big thing without the hood) and the sleeves are.
    By that I mean, folding the fabric and then cutting out the pieces with the unmarked seams (=…

    Please elaborate a bit. What exactly confuses you?

    You first sew the hood separately on both the lining and the black fabric, meaning seams 1 and 2. But you should have done this already by this s…

    The seam marked 5 is basically from under your arm to your ankle. I always found it easier though, to just start with the long front line and then construct the pattern from there. So at the lower …

    You should have 2 front pieces, 1 back piece (on fold), 2 sleeves (cut on fold), 2 front and hood lining pieces and 2 sleeve lining pieces (on fold).
    So that makes 9 pieces total :)
