If you can look past the fact that I look absolutely horrible in this photo, you’ll notice… my BurdaStyle dress is finished! I can honestly say, this project was a lot of fun to work on (it may also have to do with the fact that I finally got to work on something I really wanted to make). The directions were clear, the pieces went together well, and the fit is spot on. I will caution that even though this pattern is labeled ‘easy’ I wouldn’t suggest it for very new sewers or those who haven’t tried sewing stretch fabrics before – the curved areas are ‘tricky’ to stitch (I suggest lots of pins, just in case), especially in a knit fabric (I think there might be a tendency to overstretch these areas). Otherwise, the effect of this dress is extremely flattering and makes for a fun, casual look in a stripe!
I’ll be doing the draw for the Singer One sewing machine later on in the day. After I have a chance to contact the winner, etc. I’ll be sure to make an announcement on the page!
