Slimming Cowl Neck Jersey Dress

Burda pattern Cowl Neck Jersey Dress. Love this pattern. Super easy and it looks amazing. I’m about a size 4 so when I cut my pattern I used the smallest size and I did not add seam allowances and it fits me like a glove.
I would like to point out that the sleeves are long. I was going to adjust the length but it looked so good I decided not too. I tried on the dress before I attached the sleeves and the dress is stunning with no sleeves as well. And 3/4 sleeves would be beautiful too.
I’ve included some pics of the dress without sleeves and a belt which looks stunning.

Material Notes

I used a stretch jersey with poly mix. I wish I could find more of this fabric because it’s gorgeous. I think I paid $3/metre and I used a meter and half.

    Well done. Agreed, it looks good both with and without sleeves, with a slight edge (in my opinon) going to the version without sleeves. Ditto for the version with the hem above the knee. Congrats.
