    Hello bwLowry! I’m wondering if you might be able to offer some advise on a dress that you did such a beautify job on. I’m in the process of making the Metallic Dress 12/2012 #112 from and using the pattern insert from the Winter 2014 catalog. I have several issues…. First,, I’m not sure I have all the pieces as the front skirt looks to be missing a section and I can’t seem to find the adjoining piece on the sheets. I have nodes 1 & 4 and about 4 inches of slope after which I run out of cutting lines. I’m trying to contact Burda for advice on that topic. Secondly, I can’t seem to understand how the front of the top goes together (the pleating under the right arm). I’m an experienced seamstress but this one has me completely baffled. I’m also new to Burda and this whole “copy the colored lines for your pattern” jigsaw puzzle thing. Any insight you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for posting your project!
