Seam dress dress

Northern Ireland...






This is my take on the burda seam detail dress.

Material Notes

I made this in a fabric generally reserved for soft furnishing, but many dresses are made up un quite robust fabric, which hold the fashion detail. So, the fabric choice was ok, but still grey!
No lining, so quick and easy to make up.
The external dart details give a good finish.
Would make this design again.




Winter, Fall
Garment Type
Classic, Business
Linen, Suiting

    Lovely! I love grey! You can always jazz it up with a bright scarf or a belt, or be all business-like – very versatile.

      Good pattern, but I forgot to shorten it in the body of the skirt and didn’t have sufficient fabric for the back pleat. Great pattern
