I’m late with projects for Burda 2015 Challenge.. I didn’t manage to finish April’s make on time.. I stopped working on my dress after tracing the pattern.. Month later, the dress is finished.. I really liked all three versions of wrap dress from Burda 04/2015.. I picked the cap sleeve version #121, the other two patterns you can see here and here..
The dress from the magazine is made from striped fabric and I wanted to make something similar.. In my stash I found this forgotten striped cotton fabric.. There is more than 20 pattern pieces for this dress and it was fun to put them together.. As usual, I all my concentration was devoted to matching the stripes and it was very successful.. My skirt is shorter than the pattern suggests.. I wanted to sew those large pockets but they didn’t look good with shorter skirt.. That's why once again I don't have pockets on a garment.. I made one more change with my dress.. I skipped sewing the two ties that make a cute bow and went only with snap closure..
The fit of the dress is great.. I’m still not sure if I would keep this dress for myself.. It looks a bit too serious for me.. Probably because of the lapels.. If I find time, I would love to make a version without the lapels because I like other details on this dress..
