My first Burdastyle project! I’m really happy with the result – it’s a very comfortable dress that still feels fitted with the addition of a belt. I cut the sleeves a bit shorter and double folded the edges under instead of using the edging piece. If I don’t wear a belt, the pockets are a little low on the front of the dress but I can’t see myself ever wearing it without something to cinch the waist.
