Test run of the popular Burda 02/2011 #101
Added Aug 12, 2013
I’ve been eyeing this pattern since it first came out, but haven’t gotten back to sewing again until this summer.
I’ve seen reports here that some have had problems with the fit, so I decided to do a test run in a cheap quilting fabric I got on sale. I thought that the reported gaping neckline wouldn’t be a problem for me as I have wide and high shoulders… but it happened here too. The neckline is low cut, and that’s fine, but then there is the gaping… The fit besides that is just perfect! (It sits much better on me in person than it does in the picture).
Now I know what changes to make to get a dress that fits perfectly and that I’ll be able to wear without constantly reminding myself “Do NOT bend down, do NOT bend down” :-)
