Description

My first project on Burdastyle! This is a really good pattern, not very difficult, and fits how I expected ( I made a straight -up size 12 and I wear size 6 in most store clothes). I switched up the pattern a bit to make the buttons non-functional and put a zipper in back (Im impatient and that seemed quicker). For the pockets I used a little scrap of lightweight green denim I had screen printed some TVs on a while back. The rest is just medium weight cotton.

    so cute! I love the color combo.

    I have a question about this pattern, if you don’t mind. Do you think the ruched aspect of the side panels could be changed so they’re smooth? I’ve had my eye on the Kasia for a long time, but I want to make a work version so I’d rather avoid the ruched side/button-up combo. Do you have any thoughts on how easy or cute or worth-it that would be? Or do you think the ruched sides are kind of the point and I should find another pattern haha. I just love the button front.

      Hi Thank you!

      I bet you could get rid of the ruching. Im thinking you can trace that piece keeping the side seam (that part isn’t ruched) and then retrace the part where it connects to the skirt to match that curved seam. Does that make sense? Haha, its hard to explain things in type, but if I ever try it myself Ill let you know!
