I had a lot of fun making this dress. It has some nice details and it is simple at the same time.
Burda patterns tend to be a little wide at my shoulders and bust. So even when I make it a size smaller at the top, I still have to cut 2 cm above the bust. The little sleeves where to wide and not puffy at all. By making an extra fold in the sleeve I could give it a little bit more puffiness.
The last standard change I made was cutting 8 cm from the hem. If I would make it a second time, I would shorten it 2 cm at the waist. I think the proportions would be better.
