Description

I have used the bodice of Burda’s pattern #118 (sheath dress) over and over! I cannot get enough of it! I used it again for this dress and then drafted my own pattern for the pleated skirt. On the model the pattern is a little lose, I decided to make it a bit more fitted. I also added a few inches to the neck so that it wasn’t quite so open along the neckline. And instead of keeping the sleeveless look I added a flare to the armhole edges to create a flared cap sleeve look. Overall it looks beautiful on my friend Mckenna who wore it to her graduation!

      I will find a picture. I did a 22 inch tan exposed zipper on the back. I will try to find a picture of the back and add it. Let me know how it works in your sewing class!

      It came out in March 2013. If you look to the right of the dress there is a picture of the pattern that I used for the bodice of the dress (pattern #118). You can click on that link and it should take you there! Let me know if you have trouble finding it.
