I made this dress using Burda 01/2005 pattern for model 108A. I simply extended the length up to my right shin and cut it diagonally to reach my left knee. I hemmed the dress using a small zigzag stitch to get a wavy edge since the material is jersey. I also shortened the sleeves and cut them diagonally too. I also applied the zigzag stitch for the sleeve hems. Along the neckline I inserted an elastic band. It turned out pretty nice.
