This is Burda 7309 pattern. I sewed view A where there is no contrast fabric nor Peter Pan collar. However I chose view B’s short sleeve and removed the two front belt loops. This is a very cute retro-style dress pattern with a fitted bodice, lovely pleats on sleeve heads, box pleat at centre front of the pencil skirt and invisible zipper at centre back.

In lieu of neck facing, I added lining to this dress which is not included in the pattern instruction. I wish I had put in two hidden pockets at side seams otherwise this dress would have scored a perfect mark in my book.
