Added Dec 4, 2013
The top part is the #108 dress from Burda 10/2013, but I changed the number of elements, I cut the front from one piece (with darts), and the back from two pieces. For the skirt I took the 005A skirt from Burda Classic, fitted on the hips and full circle bottom.
I added the belt because it adds something interesting in the middle of the dress. I also think that it looked much better before I sewed on the sleeves, they disturb the proportions, but they’re going to stay because it’s a Winter wool dress after all.
The back of the dress is partly cut together with the front parts, so when you stitch together the body and the two-part sleeves, it will give the following result of connected seams. v I added some decorative stitches on the right side of the seams, which allowed me to secure the seam allowances on the wrong sides.
