This is my first burdastyle project. I have added some darts in the front for a better fit. They turned out a bit too long and are nearly touching the bust darts. I also have to learn how to fit an invisible zip…

    I love this dress and would like to make it for myself, but am 49 and wonder if the style is too young for me. I would make it a little longer, can I ask your opinion?

      Hi Jenny,
      Thank you for your message. Why not try it? I found lately that I am wearing a lot of things I thought were not my style and I feel great in it!
      Best of luck!

    looks great! The fabric is great. The zipper looks good in the photo. But if it helps… i found that my machine (an older Kenmore) refuses to work with invisible zipper feet. My regular zipper foot actually works best for invisible zippers… just takes a lot of basting and going slow.

    Well, I think it looks real cute on you. The zipper looks good on the pics. Your material usage sounds like something I could have come up with! Good job.

    Well done – I love the fabric . I had to come and have a closer look to see what you had made it out of!
