Burda 05-2005 #125 Wrapover Dress
I started this dress last week when my mom was here. I stopped working on it while she was here because the sewing room is technically the guest room. This is from 05-2005. It's got a cute wrapover top section. I didn't make very many alterations to it. I shortened it quite a bit. The original version is calf length. I also added bra cups to this because I can't really wear a bra with it. I made two bodices and put the bra cups in between the two layers. I stitched the bra cups to the lining.
This is a rayon-lycra blend. It is probably too thin for this dress. It shows every body wrinkle, wobble, and imperfection. I think it's a bit too thin for this. Live and learn.
Here's the gathering details. Under the cross there is a small hole where you overlap the pieces. Because it is under the cross detailing you never see it.
