Description

Well this started out as a racer back maxi but it went horribly wrong and I’m so glad it did. Saving the fabric was a challenge but it turned into this mad stripped mini and I love it, actually grateful for the mistake I made. This Burda dress is simple to sew and a joy to wear.

    You’ ve made excellent use of this beautiful fabric, and I’used this pattern for one of my favorite tops! I’m usually scared of stripes when the pattern pieces aren’t just rectangles…But I’m thinking of a maxi striped dress right now…Did the stripes cause the problem in your maxi dress?

      Thanks Elpida, no I didn’t have any problem matching the stripes, I just took my time cutting it, what happened was the racer back was too low and I had an obscene amount of side boob. Looking forward to seeing you maxi.

      Thank you so much Ellen, I’m happy it turned out good even though none of the stripes match.
