As this didn’t turned out like I hoped I promised to myself that this will be the last jersey dress for a long while! I don’t hate the dres but I don’t really like it either. I might shorten it a bit maybe. I don’t know. I just put it away now for a while :)

Pattern is from Burda 6/2009.

    Did you shorten it already? If you didn’t, don’t! I think it looks just fine the way it is (the whole dress).

      No, I didn’t shorten it. I just left it in the back of the closet :)

    Funny, I thought the bust was supposed to be that loose, as a sort of cowl like decolletage ;-) I really like it too and the length is perfect to keep it look sophisticated!

      Maybe it was supposed to be that loose, I just didn’t realize it in the model pictures. It is definitely my fault, I’m not blaming Burda :) Hmm, maybe your’re right and the length is just fine, thanks!

    Love how your dress came out! Looks really good! What is the problem? I know this pattern very well. My dress I made from this pattern, is my most beloved ever! I used som stretchy satin fabric and I wear it really often.

      Oh, thank you! The problem is that I feel it doesn’t sit nicely on me. Especially the bust part is too baggy. But maybe after few weeks it will look different to me :)
