Description

Burda Description: This narrow dress has a high collar with uprising darts for a perfect figure, made even better by stretch found in the fabric. It is pulled on and off by a zipper at the left side seam that allows room. There is also a zipper at the shoulder.

I used a rib knit instead of the satin in the pattern recommendations and copied a size 38 without seam allowances. I reduced the sleeve width to make them a bit fitted. I used an exposed zipper at the shoulder seam instead the invisible one.

Sewn with the overlocker, but zipper inserted with regular sewing machine and edge finishing on hem and sleeves with coverstitch (chain stitch).

Recommend using iron on interfacing on the edges where the zipper is to be inserted, especially if using knits.
