In Sweden, people are obsessed with numbers, and most people know what week of the year it is offhand! This week is week 45, and I am working on the #135 Burda plus size off the shoulder dress. The model in the Burda image looks so sultry, and the dress seemed flattering, so I just had to try it!
The line drawing looked simple enough, but when I looked at the instructions for the collar piece which are listed as step 4, there were really about 18 different steps that had to be taken to complete it! Oh Burda instructions, why must you be so difficult? Now I know why this is an intermediate pattern.
After sewing all the vertical pieces and pressing all the seams for the outer fabric and lining, I decided I needed to put this down for a day and wrap my head around the collar step. Once the collar is finished, the rest of the instructions are clear and I will be able to zip right through to the last step, zipper installation! I can’t wait to see if this actually comes out as a flattering and wearable dress or not!
