Added May 21, 2011
I sewed my very own Cute collared dress (from burda #7494) back in February 2011 and my sister wanted me to sew one for her too. My brief: bright, summery, large floral print. Well here it is (and I even convinced her to model it!)
Again, I substituted the dress zipper with an invisible zipper and decreased the amount of pouf generated by the skirt back pleats. I added belt hooks at the side seams to fit a vintage belt. The skirt is lined as per pattern instructions. I didn’t make the jacket included in the pattern.
Dress : Japan Lawn Artist Poppy, red 110cm ($11.95/metre from Spotlight); Collar: Top Pop Poplin, white 112cm ($3.99/metre from Spotlight); Interfacing; 60 cm invisible zipper, white; Pattern notes also suggest silk, taffeta, crepe (dress) and organza (collar)
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
