Burdastyle September dress 122

I made this from some lightweight (poly mix) suiting.
I traced the size 36- but as my waist is the larger size, I cut it with 2cm side and center back seam allowances. All other seams were cut at 1cm to make it easier to sew the curved pieces accurately. I then assembled the front and backs and pinned the sides to fit my shape.
I needed to leave slits in the shoulders to allow for proper arm movement.
It was a pretty quick make as I didn’t make any muslin and fitted as I went along.

    The black fabric gives the impression of a light bolero jacket over the dress! Can have fun with two tones of fabric. Admire your lovely serging-I don’t have a serger. All edges are so neatly made! Thanks for sharing your project. :)

      It does look a little like a bolero alright! A serger/overlocker makes life a bit easier – it saves needing to line everything to get a clean finish:)

      Thanks – the panels give great scope for mixing fabrics:)
