Iowa City , Iowa...
The Pattern is Burda Style 7301, I used a medium weight brocade from my stash.
It was a fairly easy sew but I had to make a few changes. Aside from my standard alterations to accommodate my broad shoulders coupled with shrunken torso length, I found that the scalloped neckline tabs did not work for me which was sad as the feature was cute but they were eating my neck so I cropped them to a V shape that met at the center front seam.
The bodice is designed with under bust pleats, I found this not to work on my body so I made darts.
