Pattern: Burda 7219
Pattern Description: B7219 Burda Style Dress & Blouse – Light summer blouse with a tiny slit, V-neck and collar. Enchanting lingerie style dress with lace applications and tie belt.
Pattern Sizing: 10 – 22 (European 36 – 48) which corresponds to bust sizes 33 inches to 43.5 inches (84-110 cm). I made a size 20 for a high bust measurement of 41.5 inches.
Instructions: They were fine. I would change the order, so that I trimmed the pattern piece seam allowances for the armholes before cutting my fashion fabric instead of trimming the fashion fabric after the shoulder seams are sewn.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
LIKE: I was drawn to the pattern by the neckline.
DISLIKE: They don’t mention trimming the seam allowance for the tank top armholes until you have the shoulder seams sewn.
DISLIKE: Just like almost every other pattern out there, they make no allowance for and no suggestions for busts larger or smaller than that the pattern was designed for.
DISLIKE: What cup size was the pattern designed for?
A white, cotton pique that I’ve in my stash for quite a while. It is heavier than the fabrics suggested, and I think the pattern would be better with a lighter fabric.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I did a full bust alteration.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don’t know if I would make it again. Maybe. It fits great, and I do like the neckline.
This is a nice, easy, basic for a wardrobe.
