Description

Pattern modifications:
1) I made long arms on the dress and the light gathering in the hip area is replicated on cuffs -

2) I graded the pattern from this dress in petite sizes into tall sizes.

I integrated the zipper because the dress is close fitting. A small elastic band is integrated in the overlock seam on the waistline

    This is such a nice dress. You’ve made a lovely version of it and well done for matching the fabric! :)

    Thank you so much for your additional photos and information. You enclosed that elastic perfectly in the serged seam. After seeing yours the other day, I’ve already pulled the magazine and prepped for tracing!! Thank you for your encouragement!! :)

    Beautiful dress! Good idea to lengthen the sleeves, autumn is not far….

    Wonderful dress! And out of Burda’s original fabric! Love the sleeves and sleeve detail you added. I like it paired with the long cardi too. Question….. did you include the zipper? With the stretch material I wondered if it could be made without the zip. So glad you are a part of the sewing community! Your work is beautiful and inspiring. :)

      Thanks for your positive feedback!
      I integrated the zipper because the dress is close fitting. A small elastic band is integrated in the overlock seam on the waistline. See new photos.
      I recommend you also try making this dress
