Blue 20's dress

This is the godet dress from Burda 07/12. I made it for a birthday which theme was: the 30s (my friend had 30, that’s why).
The fabric is a blue crepe quite easy to sew.
The size was too big.

Every time harder to write in English… every time shorter.

    It does look to big in the back. I always make a mock pattern first out of muslin. I baste this together and then fit the muslin on myself. I then draw the hem lines on the muslin fabric, take the basting out and use these pattern pieces for the regular fabrics. I know this sounds time consuming, but you’ll get much better results!

    It’s a really pretty dress! If I was to make one I would use stretch jersey and give it an updated feel.

      Thanks Laurelle, I do that now… and don’t always trust on Burda’s measures.
