Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Burda style 118A 10/2012; Burda Style 101 10/2012 Link to website or photo www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/cowl-dress-102012 What are you most proud of? Mission: accomplished! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Reinforce all horizontal seams with elastic or stay tape I also stabilized the gathering at the waist (elastic) and armholes (stay tape). Since the pattern is bias cut in parts you want to be sure it keeps its shape. Especially when using a knit!

What you will need

  • Rayon/Lycra Jersey in abstract graffiti print; clear elastic; interfacing for cuffs; vilene bias/stay tape. A mixture of Burda Style 10/2012 118A Cowl Dress and Burda Style 11/2012 101 Chiffon Dress sleeves. Other slight changes were made - no zipper is used; sleeves lengthened; length shortened.
