I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it in the magazine. To be sure it was going to fit I tried to do everything right and even compared my measures again with the Burda chart. Normally I make a 36 without even looking, but I saw that my numbers match closer to the 38. Since I want to be able to wear shirts under it, I went for the 38. Well, argh, the 36 would have been perfect, grmpf. Now it fits my doll better than me, but I still quite like it. I will definitely make this pattern again, in 36 and with other fabrics. It’s an easy project, I highly recommend it! And even with the wool fabric I used it doesn’t get too bulky, which I feared.
(I used a regular zipper, the special one they recommend would make it even better)
Go far afield in wrap dresses, detailed jackets, and comfy separates for fall.
