This is Burda 6852 Puff Sleeve Dress. It’s a pattern with a youthful feel, given the short skirt, jaunty sleeves and useful pockets. It has several things I’d not done before such as the faced hem. This pattern has a good deal of versatility, as the centre panel can be done in contrast. I changed the neckline for a cowl neck and omitted the zip.
I think keeping the zip in would help to diffuse the fact that the checks don’t match terribly well!
