Description

I made two dresses out of the same pattern (burda style magazine 1/2010 Cap-sleeve Mini Dress #130), one for fall/winter in wool and one for spring/summer in cotton. Just love both of them!

Ps, sorry for the lousy pictures : )

    Hi, I;m wondering if you can help me. I have cut out my pattern of this dress, but the sleeve pattern is for a full length not a cap sleeve! Did you have this problem?

      Hi!

      No, I did not have that problem, but maybe there is a line ON the long sleeve part that you can follow to make the cap sleeves? It’s now year ago that I made the dresses and I don´t really remember if that was the case or if the cap sleeve was a seperate part in itself. I hope this will help ypu, otherwise I really don’t have any good advise exept maybe to make the dress sleeveless, like my summerversion : )

    Your dresses are so cute! Especially I love the wool one. I’m thinking of making this dress too and I have a question, are these cap sleeves comfortable?

      Glad that you like the dresses! I also like the wool one the best since it turned out that the material suited the pattern better, I think at least.

      To your question, I think that the cap sleeves are comfortable when I wear the dress as it is but it is more easy to slip a cardigan on top of the dress without the sleeves.
      I think that you should try to make the dress with the sleeves, and remove the if you don’t like it. They were easy to make, and did not need much fabric : )
