I made this dress yesterday and it sewed up so well i already have another one cut out lol. The black scuba fabric only arrived yesterday hence the mad sewing before i went out. This dress is from the burda Style special spring/summer 1/2014. It’s a plus size and started at a size 22. I am a 14/16 (should be a 12/14 but i love my grub lol) so i did my normal adjustments and it turned out well. I even made my first pair if knickers!! Well second if you count the pair that would’nt go past my knees lol. I forgot about stretch. I am crazy happy about the undies lol. Everyone that admired my dress got a cheeky peek of my pants in the ladies lol. While they’re far from perfect they fitted perfectly and i always loved the idea of my undies matching my dresses. I used the sleeves of another dress in the same magazine as i liked them better. I really love this scuba fabric as it holds its shape so well x
