To make this one, I combined three patterns: the Tara pattern from BurdaStyle (the skirt), dress pattern from Burda 3/2009 (the yoke), and blouse pattern from Burda 6/2007 (cap sleeves). It was actually easier to combine them than I expected. The most difficult part were the sleeves because the yoke is lined so I had to insert the sleeves between the two layers and stitch them.
The dress is very versatile and comfortable.
