Now, usually I get stumped following the instructions in Burda, but yep, this was smooth sailing for me. I was also happy with the fabric I purchased from Joann's too, it had a great
drape to it and the print is also pretty vibrant. I traced this almost as soon as I got the mag. in July. I added 3" to the length because of my height to get that true Maxi look, all the ones i tried on over the summer always stopped above my ankles, yeech! It was refreshing to be able
to make it the way I liked! I've since, made the tube to go underneath, as Tany suggested in
her blog, which allowed me to wear a bra comfortably because of the low back!
Pattern Description: Halter dress, The back is loosely wrapped and attached tie-bands shape the waist.
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? Yes, easy peasy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This was a very easy sew, I made it in 3 hours which is a good time for me. Dislikes, well... the back is pretty low, so it's impossible to wear a bra, which I feel uncomfortable not wearing, :-/
Fabric Used: Jersey Knit
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added 3 inches to the length.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes/ Yes, but keep in mind that it's very low-cut in the back.
Conclusion : I think I kinda like this dress, lol, it's very comfortable to wear and was a quick project for me. In the future I do plan to try a method used by Tany here on her blog to solve the low back issue.
