I used burda young 7556, view B. Because there were three sets of darts on the bodice, I made a practice piece out of the top, and it was a great learning experience.
I had trouble understanding the armholes for View B, and didn’t have the pattern piece that was mentioned. So I came up with my own armholes using pattern piece 9 and cutting it 6 times, 3 per side. I am not great at following pattern instructions, so I improvised. Interfacing and top stiching make the neckline sturdy.
I thought I purchased 100% cotton, but I believe this is a cotton blend due to the way it responded to fusible interfacing. Good idea to practice with interfacing on a sample fabric piece. Also, use a light iron setting until you see how the interfacing gets along with your fabric choice.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
