New Dress

Remember this fabric?

Dress from BurdaWOF 12-2002

I decided to make a dress from Burda World of Fashion magazine 12-2002 (at right) out of it. I was thinking that a casual fabric would tone down the formality, and I’d have a dress that I could wear to work.

I think it worked okay; the dress is below on ‘tina. My daughter can’t stand it. :)

I’m not sure how I feel about it. It looks great on ‘tina, and it looks good on me as long as I don’t move. When I move, it grabs my spare tire, and that is very unflattering. Spanx is an option, but I am opposed to girdles on general principle.

The line drawings of the dress are below. I omitted the facings. Instead I serged the neckline edge, turned the serged edge under, and stitched it down. Oh, and I left off the zipper. Who puts a zipper in a knit dress?
