Description

This pattern was in last June’s Burda magazine. It is pattern 101 C, jersey mini dress. Being a northern hemisphere magazine the dress is meant to be a summer dress, but it’s winter down here so my version is a cool weather version.

The fabric is a beautiful merino from The Fabric Store. I’ve always been a bit daunted to use merino, because it’s such great quality and I didn’t want to ruin it. But the colours of this fabric were just too much to resist.

In the end, the merino was extremely easy to sew with. I lengthened both the sleeves and the skirt to make it a bit more cold weather appropriate. I also cut the front neckline just slightly more scooped so that I can identify the front from the back. I didn’t want to make it too long because that might be too heavy and frumpy, but I think the length I chose works about right.
