    Atmomma, I used the Jane pattern. I added 20cm to the length of the top to turn it into a dress. I lined the whole bust area with white lining (if I used the material like the instructions say it would have shown through). I used bra straps for the straps. I also added an elastic to the top back because otherwise it would have been too loose. I hadn’t realised about the different paper sizes. My test square is 11.2 cm x 11.2 cm (not 10×10) which is why mine turn out too loose. Dosn’t matter though cause I’m happy with the way the elastic makes it look at the back and it’s really comfy.

    Very well done! I love the fabric. Which Burda pattern did you use? I would like to make a dress like this for an upcoming banquet and haven’t been able to find the right pattern.

    The dots make it look like 70’s – very stylish! I like it very much!
