Uhhh, not quite.
That's more like it. Though in the grand tradition of BurdaStyle patterns, you really can't tell what this dress looks like from the picture. At all.
I've made three of these so far and now when I see a great fabric, my instinct is always to make a Heidi.
It took some cajoling to get the pattern to fit, mostly because the Burda patterns run so big, but now it's a flattering, versatile, modern dress.
I'd been thinking about the Heidi because the first one I made - the black one - was still a little big and this weekend I took up the shoulders to make it fit a bit better. You can find details of the Heidis on my BurdaStyle profile.
Have you made a Heidi? What's your most tried and true dress pattern?
In other news:
I spent $23 on black cotton lining that feels like bemberg(!) and $9 on white-with-black-polka-dots rayon. I didn't buy any ready to wear clothing.
Grand total I spent only $112 on clothing in February but don't worry! I plan on spending a huge wad of cash buying a metric f*#!ton of fabric from Mood. Seriously. I don't know what's gotten into me.
