Description

My first project using my new Dressform!! This took me about one night and an hour the next day to finish, it is burda young 7233. I love the lines the seams give it, i was very impressed with this pattern, definitely one of my favorites!! 16 in zipper in the back and bow in the front. Fabric is linen, found it at Joanns!

    I am planning to make this as the jumper, but it looks so cute as a dress I might have to switch plans. You did a great job on your dress

    I just bought this pattern yesterday and stumbled across your website to see if I could find how to get started or how to work with a pattern for the first time. I love your dress and I hope mine turns out anywhere near that good. Keep up the good work.

    You’ve done a magnificent job on this … It looks soooo professional … Your dress form seems to have also paid for itself already! :) I can’t imagine sewing this one without a form … or a VERY patient friend who would stay with you to help with such perfect fitting. It also shows off you beautiful figure too. :)

    gorgeous dress!!!! I want this! :) I have a very similar fabric, linen blend, with the same purple/pink florals… i bought 1.15m for a Vogue dress, but realised afterwards I actually needed 1.6m! So now I have 1.15m of fabric to use for another project. How much fabric did this dress need?

      i actually had only 1 yard! It was the end of the bolt, and i was hoping i had enough.. but i ended up have some left over! I think 1 yard converts to a little short of a meter
