Description

This is the Azalea dress, my first Burda pattern. I had some trouble understanding the instructions for the yoke, and I ended up having to take it in an extra inch near the zipper side. I’m not sure if the size I used was too big; the dress feels a bit big, but I really like the design and it’s mad comfy!

Material Notes

crinkled cotton for the yoke and under dress; cotton for outer dress

    I think I started with 2.5 yards for the yoke and under dress, and 2 yards for the outer dress. I probably had a bit extra because I am still not quite sure what I am doing. ; )

    When I saw the pattern, I didn´t like it. The pictures of the model have not changed my mind. But YOUR version is so cute, and it shows the strength of that pattern, to show a really pretty body shape! Very nice!

    I like the combination of fabrics that you used— very pretty and spring-like. I also have to admit that I like the pattern much better, seeing it belted at the waist like that. Nice work!
