"Global Capitals" Dress - Burda Style 7201

Added Mar 23, 2016

by SeamRacer

St. Louis, Misso...






My dress received its nickname from the amazing satin print showing major spots from all over the world. The pattern I used was Burda Style #7201 (which I can’t find in their website). This dress was quick to make and is great to wear. I made the obi belt reversible in two different brown tones so I can change up the look.

      Thank you, I like that word “stellar”! The print is fun isn’t it, no wonder it disappeared quickly in the fabric store, right?

      Thanks Mary, some scraps on hand helped me pull this one together. The belt is great – my first obi style!

      Thank you, this was one of those “sudden decision” whipped up projects…helped by my dad’s ideas! Now if I can just get around to visiting these places in the world…
