My original plan for this project was a little black dress, but through a string of coincidences I ended up with something a lot more fun. I had decided to make a size 38 since the trauma of my pink summer dress is still all too fresh in my memory and I automatically distrust all Burda Young patterns. I had bought not enough fabric for this size, though, so I had to improvise. Going through my fabric stash I discovered I had some leftovers from my awesome cat t-shirt and thought why not? It’d make a more cheerful choice for our dreary German winter than a completely black dress.
Regarding my choice of size, I should have really known better by now. Burda patterns usually have a crazy amount of ease built in, only said pink summer dress seems to have been the odd one out. As you can see, the finished dress is too big for me, but I’m actually okay with that. It’s comfy as hell and very warm to boot. The cat print is so much fun, too!
