I was inspired by current RTW dresses with cap-styled sleeves and slightly draped necklines. To achieve a similar look, I used Burda #110 cowl front top that I converted to a dress, with the skirt “borrowed” from dress #133 (this dress has the draped back) of the same issue. I shortened the top to create a “bodice” to be attached to the skirt portion. I liked the pleated front of the skirt and the natural drape of the neckline due to the extended neckline coupled with the top cut on the bias.
If you are new to Burda Style magazine patterns, I highly recommend this pattern. There are only 2 pattern pieces to trace and sew together!
