I am madly in love with 60s shift dresses at the moment so I had to try Burda 7056 (from burda style’s paper pattern line).
What I like about the pattern: It’s roomy without being unflattering, I love the gentle A-line silhouette and I also really like the unusual way the armholes are cut (even if it does mean wearing a special bra to hide your straps).
I did have to lower the neckline because it was originally so high that it was a little uncomfortable.
Discounted stretch sateen (from Spotlight), Invisible zip, Gtermann polyeter thread, Iron on interfacing (for facings)
