My stash busting challenge is underway and this dress was a freshly cut out Burda pattern. I love color of this dress but it didn't show as green in pictures as it in reality. It is the color of new spring grass! I am still working on using the camera and was in a bit of a hurry when taking these pics. I really love this dress because it is easy to wear and is soooo comfortable! I have styled it a couple of other ways that I will share in another post. The empire waist gives it lots of ease and would be great for someone in the early preggo stage. That is in no way a hint that I am expecting!! No way. The only baby in my tummy these days would be a food baby!
Pattern: Burda 7378
Fabric used: A polyester that really behaves like a silk... I do like it.
Instructions: I didn't follow them exactly, I like to attach the facings on a sleeveless dress so that they can be pulled through. I did this before the skirt was attatched.
If I could change anything: I would have fully lined the front!! I hate that you can see the facing line across the chest! I didn't realized that this would be a problem until I had already attatched the skirt and put in the zip. Short of taking it all apart...I'm not sure what to do to remedy this problem.
Repeat worthy? I probably won't make this dress again for myself but I do like it and recommend it.
