I made this Anda dress for my aunt and it is similar to the one
I made for her about a week ago. I really wanted the pattern, so she could make it herself later on. Instead of using the casing, I used elastic. Oddly – the elastic is not at the same location on the front and back of the dress, but it worked out. According to the size table, she should have been Burda size 54 or something so I increased the pattern, but when I cut that one out – it looked like a really HUGE, ugly hospital gown. I cut the second on at a 48 and used a 3/8" seam for the sides and I think it worked out well.
Not sure what type of fabric (it was in a box I bought off of craigslist); elastic, thread
