This is my Christmas Birthday dress.
Made with lilac and silver brocade which was given to me by my sister for my birthday back in July. I made it in time to wear to the family party on boxing day. When I saw the seamed dress in Burda 08/2012 I knew that it was the pattern to make. I omitted the centre front seam as I didn’t want to disrupt the pattern too much. I used the reverse of the fabric for contrast on the shoulders. I also shortened the skirt by about 2 inches. However the tall size works really well as I have a long torso – Mental Note, lengthen all Burda standard sizes!
I fully lined the bodice and interlined and lined the skirt. I graded from a 72 top and waist to a 76 hip.
I have just enough fabric left to make a short bolero style jacket.
