This dress I created from the Maryy Dress pattern. I found the straps to be a bit odd so I changed them to normal spaghetti straps. I used a metallic stretch fabric.

  • According to Burda’s measurement guide I am a size Burda size 40, which I thought to be a bit strange because I am UK size 10. The dress was too long and too big around the bust. A bit of fabric was wasted, nontheless the dress is a lovely little statement.
  • If you are going to use fabric that doesn’t stretch, you will probably need to add a zipper.

    I really like tha fabric used and the changes you made. I usually have trouble with sizing too, but it’s still better to have some fabric cut off than making a dress that doesn’t come up… HA!! :)
