B.W.O.F. 7/09 - 105

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 per usual 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:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I plan to make another one in a more calmer print, lol.

: It's a great summer cool dress.



  1. I like your "loud" print. Cute dress. Your hair and make-up always looks so good. Yes I realize what you do for a living but beleive me I have learned that that is no guarantee.

  2. I really like it. And I love the print. I think that it was a great choice. I have never tried Burda patterns. I just may need to step out of the box and go for it.

  3. As long as you feel good in it, keep it moving. Do what works for you. I think the print makes a nice statement.

  4. I love the loud colors. The dress is very cute on you.
