      This dress is easy to sew, I love the fabric : blue and white, and the look for the summer. Pattern from Couture facile E971 Burda (Robe-tunique n°10 B)

    • Dress to the tunic

      The design E971 from magazine “Sewing made easy” issue 1/2008. I shortened the length as tunic and added an elastic inside the hem.

      I really wasn’t happy with this dress.

      It was my first Burda project. The only reason I picked this pattern was because it was one of that season’s free downloads, so I suppose I can’t really complain – but frankly, I can’t imagine how this tulip-skirt tunic shape…

      Added Apr 15, 2011

      I loved the loud colors of this fabric and thought it might make a fun summer dress. The most fun was deciding where to position the flowers! I put the pinkest, largest flower towards the bottom, center and let the selvage be the hemline.

      Added Jun 13, 2010

      I saw an old 50s photo someone posted on a blog which inspired me to make this dress. That blog is unavailable right now so I can’t link to it :( I think I saved the photo on my computer at home though so I will have a look for it later on.

      This is a shortened version of the Burda E971 Tunic Dress pattern. I added the “bones” (as my sister calls them) to the shoulders to add length. I also added a belt for a bit more shape and had to put darts in the back of the yoke for a better fit.

    • Blouse Burda E971

      Added Jun 5, 2008

      I took the patterns from the site Burda Fashion and I transformed a tunic into a blouse. I didn’t put elastic on the sleeves.
      Made a fabric flower (hints from Burda Style’s how tos). It is my second project.
