Over the Christmas holidays I will pick two or three project to complete. Normally it is a quilt, but this time its a few pieces of clothing to fill out the wardrobe. Rifling through the pattern box, I chose Burda 7160.
I picked up a lovely piece of green jersey that I decided to make into a dress. While it is hard to see, this dress has a pleated detail at the neckline that is reminiscent of clothing in the 1940's. The dress came together very well except for the pleating part. I wish there would have been a bit more detail in this section of the pattern.
I would make this pattern again, but the next time I would change up the how I do the neckline and cut back on some of the excess fabric. I also would stitch the neckline. Now all that is left to do is add black hose, and shoes and some large necklace and I am ready to go.
