Instead of a stretchy wool blend I used a stretchy light cotton and decided to make a summer version of the dress. Because of this, the dress gets crinkled more easily and the shape is a bit less flattering in my opinion, but I’m still satisfied with it.
I made some changes compared to the Burda original. I decided for color blocking as the pattern seemed made for it and I didn’t make the sleeves so I simply hemmed the armholes with bias tape.
I have yet to hem the dress (and shorten it considerably from it’s current length) but that will have to wait till after the pregnancy when I can actually try it on.
