I got this great wool blend that looks kind of like tweed and thought that Angela Kane’s pattern might be good for making a basic winter dress that I could wear to work. I made some modifications though, because I was worried about the bodice looking funny on me. Using the BurdaStyle Zoe pattern as a guide, I changed the arm holes and raised the bust darts. The result is a perfect bodice block that I can use for anything. Possibly the most useful thing that I could have. I also removed the pockets and changed the neckline. This dress is pretty simple but I really love it, and it was nice to find a basic pattern and style that is flattering. It’s comfortable and classy and looks great with a cardigan and tights.
