This dress is based on the Burda Style Pattern 7132. Its super cute and stylish and a dress I feel really comfortable wearing to work. The dress itself has these really fantastic double pleats in the skirt and a stylish neckline that’s pretty and conservative. I created mine with little capped sleeves and I think if I were to sew it again I would probably add some pockets. When I was wearing it I kept reaching down to put things in my pockets but then realised there were none.
This was a really easy to make dress that is a must have for every working wardrobe.
