Description

Red plaid dress, with faux pocket flaps. Long sleeve, center back invisible zipper. fully lines. Piping details on pockets and neckline.
I found this fabric at a tag sale so the total cost of this dress was about $12!

I found this pattern to be very fitted, I made my typical size 38 grading to 42 at the hip, it was a bit constrictive at the sleeve and under the arm so I let out those seams about 1/4 inch and that was much better.

    Good work on the fit. The Burdastyle patterns were my first attempts at dresses. Now can figure on lifting the shoulders,bust adjustment and checking the armhole size opening before I start cutting! The style is so classic.
