This is the first dress I have made using a Burdstyle pattern.

I am new at working with patterns for form fitting clothing.

I used the medium pattern not knowing if it would be too small I used a 1/4" seam (as I am size 10US). I added a cute collar, boning, and turned it into a halter. After adding a zipper I realized the bodice is a little big at the bust (fits pretty good at the waist). I will have to go back and tighten at the zipper (as the collar is preventing me from tightening anywhere else without lots of seam ripping).

I still need to hem, but hope to wear with a hot pink belt and nude pumps.

Material Notes

Cotton rose bud main fabric
cotton Hot pink trim fabric
plastic boning (took out of casing and made my own between main fabric and lining)
cotton white lining fabric

      Thank you. I made it long enough to tie in the back.
