Description

This was my first Burda pattern, so a learning experience (I’m a few sizes smaller in Burda), but an adorable dress nonetheless! I wanted a tighter fit, especially with all the smart looking tailoring this pattern offers, but it was not to be…this time at least.

There are so many great details (I love the belt and slit in particular) so each sewing step was an adventure. Never a dull moment. You can follow all my ups and downs at www.twelvedressblog.com

All in all, I think it’s a great style, and lends itself very well to corduroy. I was worried about it getting lumpy around the seams but with a 21wale that wasn’t the case at all.

I highly recommend using a cotton based or other non-slippery lining to keep the straps up.

*Note: Having problems with this form…below it will say this dress is not based on a Burda Project but it is clearly based on: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/laura
