how to sew a dress: pattern


the dress got the most votes of burda 2/15, so I started with the pattern:

DSCF6724I only had to copy the pattern-pieces for the bodice and sleeves, since the skirt is just rectangles. I added 1cm seam allowance all around each piece.

DSCF6726the sleeves need a facing, so I copied the marked part onto another paper

DSCF6727the pattern-pieces

DSCF6728I can never remember on which side of a hidden button-facing (not sure about that word in english, hoping its understandable) does not need a seam allowance. So I just add it all around

DSCF6730DSCF6733and then I fold it the way its supposed to be

DSCF6734and there inside is a seam allowance I do not need

DSCF6735so I cut it off

DSCF6737and now everything fits fine

DSCF6739DSCF6740then I do the same with the button facing on the other side

DSCF6741at the dress later it will look like this.

I hope this was helpful for you! Let me know if you have any questions!

keep sewing and smiling
