Who says you can only wear sleeveless in the summer. Not in our version! We created a wintry feeling in a combination of wool and leather with some cotton print highlights. Just throw a big shawl over it or tone it down with a turtleneck and you are good to bear up against all temperatures.

    Hi, the instructions for this lovely dress are terrible. Could the burdastyle team please explain what is meant by: " For the edging, smooth out the outer (lateral) pleat of the right front skirt edge (to the pressed fold line of the next pleat), and then smooth out the other pleats. Measure off a 3” (8 cm) long edging from the first (lateral) pleat, then cut off the rest of the fabric. Fold and press the edging 1” (2 cm), fold again and stitch. Fold the edging inside and baste along the upper edge. Smooth out the rest of the fabric and press into the fold lines of the pleats. Measure off a 3” (8 cm) long edging from the last (lateral) pleat, and cut off the rest of the fabric. Fold the edge 1” (2 cm) inside and press, fold again and stitch. Fold the edging inside and baste at the upper edge" ???? I would really appreciate your help. Have purchased some lovely fabric from my fave fabric shop – Tessuti to make this dress. Just need to figure out these vague instructions.

    Would this dress get the same beautiful pleats with cotton?

    Thanks so much for mentioning that latjjardbai – I was just about to buy this, when I already have the pattern… It is unrecognisable in that awful print!
