For all of you dress lovers, this little number is easy to make., it's Burda 7082...
As I've mentioned before, I have not be a fan of dresses in the past because of the way some look on my body type. However, lately I've been trying to incorporate a few into my wardrobe. This one was easy to sew up and fit without any alterations! Really! and no "Gaposis" either! (that's a first for me with wrap style dresses!). It has an invisible zipper in the side seam and I did install it for ease in getting the dress on and off. However, if your fabric has enough stretch, you may be able to eliminate the zipper. I made my version sleeveless and really like the look of it...
I'm still working on my invisible zipper installation...getting better but still needs work!
I purchased the fabric from Michael Levine's Fabrics and LOVE IT! It's an ITY knit with a very, very nice drape and soft hand! Extremely nice to work with. Actually, I just purchased some more of it in a Navy and Coral color scheme. I made the dress a lttle longer than the version the model is wearing on the envelope, mine is a little below the knees. I would like to make this dress again in a solid color so you can easily see the details at the waistline. Sorry, I don't have any photos of me in it yet...I will post some later along with those Ponte Pants I promised you earlier.
Over all, I really like this dress very much and can't wait to wear it!
Thanks again for taking the time to read my posts, I truly appreciate it!
