##When I decided to learn to sew “for real,” this was the first project I picked to make. It’s dress #102 from the February 2007 issue of Burda minus the pleats in the skirt and the belt. The most important lesson that I learned from making this is that if I don’t attend a lot of events for which an elegant white sundress is appropriate, it doesn’t really make much sense to sew one :) This dress has hung in my closet unworn for the 5 months since i made it! Because the smallest size for this dress was 34 and I needed it in a 32, I learned how to size the pattern down and it was surprisingly easy- see my how-to on making a pattern larger or smaller to learn how to do it too.
