Maxi Dress Road Map

As much as I love the patterns found in Burda, I really dread tracing the road map of pieces that are inside. So yesterday I put aside my dislike for tracing and started to work on the Maxi Dress. Since my seam tracer has gone missing (I believe it is the abyss that is called my sewing work table), I didn’t add seam allowances to the pattern pieces and have decided that I will ‘eyeball’ it when it comes time to cut the fabric…. I hope I don’t regret that decision later. I’m also heading out to get an invisible zipper for this dress too, after checking out the pattern pieces, I think that I’m not going to be able to skip this step even though I’m using a stretch.
Anyone else working on this at the moment? I’d love to hear your thoughts before I start sewing this up!

    I have it cut out and it’s up next after I finish the blouse on the mannequin. I want it done for the Jamboree which is less than 2 weeks away! I want to wear it to seem my new boyfriend Tim, as in McGraw!! Yee Haw!!!

    I used to hate tracing the Burda patterns and thought it was so cool when Burda started selling individual patterns in the US! Do you trace the sewing line onto your fabric? That is how I was once told to do it by a ‘pro’ seamstress. She said the sewing line is “true”, unlike the cutting line on most commercial patterns.
