Brooklyn, New Yo...
This is my very first attempt at using a pattern to sew a a piece of clothing. I used Burda Style’s ZOE dress. I took a class with burda and without their help, this dress would not have turned out.
About the fabric:
I took the BurdaStyle dress pattern to a fabric store and chose the striped fabric. The woman who cut the fabric for me refused to sell me the fabric unless I bought solid color cotton fabric. She said for my first dress, I could not handle stripes. I rolled my eyes and bought the stripes and the solid color (I did not use the solid color…).
I came to realized that the woman was right: stripes are very hard to work with. But she did not know what amazing teachers I had.
I plan on wearing this dress to the fabric shop and showing it to the lady.
THANK YOU BURDA YOU ROCK!
