On My Sewing Table: Burda Peplum Sleeve Dress

Guest blogging for Burdastyle is a discipline challenge for me. I got quite a few 'unblogged' projects, a term coined by a fellow blogger Rachel Pinhero, because I never came around photographing them. With Burdastyle projects it is different. I take a lot of images and have to send them in time, no matter what. So, here is my April project, a peplum sleeve dress #112 from the February issue of Burdastyle magazine.


Fabric is chosen...

silk tweed from B&J, New York (yay, another stash busting project!)

... a muslin is sewn up (the dress doesn't pull on me, and the neckline doesn't gap, hmm...)...



By the way, the pattern is huge, so if you like the dress and want's to make it, go down at least one size smaller. I would even recommend as much as two sizes. It's worth measuring bust and hip circumferences on the pattern itself and choosing the size that corresponds to your measurements plus some ease. I went down from 38/40 (top/bottom) to 34/36. 

... adjustments are made



If you want to know more about planning process and some couture techniques I am planning to use, go over to Burdastyle Blog to read my guest post. As always, I am happy to hear your comments!

  1. Ooh, I'm really interested to see your finished dress! I'm not super attracted to the sleeves on this style, but I know that everything you make turns out amazing, so my interest is piqued!
