Burda 10-2014 #105 Cowl-neck Dress



I made this dress again and love it! This time it fits great. The last time it was made out of a merino wool knit and there was not enough stretch. This is an ITY knit and there is plenty of stretch. I made zero fit adjustments.


See? No obvious bra lines. How much do you love this print? It’s like a sunset. I bought this in San Diego.


I didn’t even attempt to match the side seams. I don’t even think you could do it with this fabric.


I love the drape of the cowl in this fabric.


Obviously, we’ve had a sighting of “the white stuff”. This might be here to stay!


Next up? I’m going to try to knock out my November Burda so that I can be ready for the Pattern Review contest!!!

Oooh, cute!

Brenda said...

Really nice! I don't think you could have done a better print placement!
And I was a little distracted by the white stuff! We put up a snow fence posts yesterday, so I told my neighbour - no snow for at least 6 weeks... yeah, right!

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
