Mmm so I made this version of the Burda day dress with a slit down the front from the last magazine. I made it in a cheap plaid cotton which I got for £3.50 and just thought it would be perfect to see whether I liked this style or not. Admittedly its probably not as floaty as it should be and the softer fabric used by Burda is much better for this dress. I am glad I didnt spend money on the fabric because whilst I like it in some respects I dont think its me at all. It seems too short and a little unflattering, especially from the back! What do you think? One good thing is I practised basic cutting of plaid and matching lines which worked well and with a very small amount of fabric!
