July/09 Burda #105
Let me start this off by saying , my hubby thinks this dress is pretty loud! lol Okay, he may be a little right,........ somewhat, lol. Yep, it'z a busy print ....but I still really like it tho. Aside from my choice of "print" this was like my 2nd time trying B.W.O.F and it was a cool learning experience for me, the instructions were a lil short tho. Anywho, I love the relaxed casual design of this dress. The raglan sleeves, inside seam pockets, standing collar and drawstring waist, appealed to me as a throw on, dress me up or down type of dress, and I love versatility. This pattern called for using flat felled seams, which I had never tried but I actually liked the clean look. Of course, I will be making this again, in a more calmer print for the summer, hopefully the hubby will approve...............................................whateva, lol.
Pattern Description: Slightly flared mini dress with 3/4-length raglan sleeves and drawstring
Pattern Sizing: 36-44
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? They were pretty much, the usual, but understandable.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the sleeves, pockets and drawstring waist, there were no dislikes.
Fabric Used: A silky, rayon I think!?
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: none
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I plan to make another one in a more calmer print, lol.
Conclusion: It's a great summer cool dress.
