    Just downloaded the dress pattern. So excited to get started, its been so long! Can someone explain the best way to add seam allowance? Why does Burda Not add Seam allowance? This kinda makes me crazy.

    I am still a sewing newbie, so I really wish BurdaStyle would do another sew along! I need all the step-by-step instruction I can get! :)

    What’s going on with the belted skirt at the bottom? Quite strange, but maybe better in a solid.
