Thanks Burda for this pattern, I think it is absolutely fabulous! I love empire waists, but usually they make me look pregnant – not this one, thanks to the pleats. I think it would flatter almost any woman.
I can make a few more checks on my list of how to become a better seamstress (precision, precision!) and improve my techinique. I used one of those invisible zippers for the first time – no biggie, except that it looks visible due to the black stripe in the fabric :-) and for the first time I lined a dress completely. I thought the fabric wouldn’t be “slippery” enough if I wear the dress with nylons. I had always shied away from lining something, but oh, was that ever worth it! Other than that… not much, it’s a perfect fit without any alterations…
