Description

Pattern : Vogue 8758
Fitted dress with ranglan sleeve, fully lined.
Partially lined jacket ( only sleeves, the rest goes with bias binding)

I love Burda but sometimes I go for a Vogue pattern, basically for the instructions. Being as I am a self taught seamstress, it´s vital for me to know the “how to” and then, if I find an interesting technique I add them to my Burda proyects.

So this is like the outcome of a mini sewing course.

Material Notes

Boiled wool for the jacket , shoulder pads, bias binding
two different colour knits, lining and zipper for the dress

Difficulty

Intermediate

      Thank you. I love bold colours, they don´t work every time but I got away with this one.
