My Burda Wrap Dress

I have a confession to make.  This Burda pattern is the very first commercial sewing pattern I've used since... ummm, 1993?  Yup!  I've only ever drafted and used my own patterns but,  now that I am designing patterns for you, I thought it was also time to tap other designers (I have an endless list of indies) and enrich my wardrobe with their sewing patterns. This Burda is style 6759.

Lets talk about this beautiful wrap dress.  The pattern calls for stretch fabrics.  Jersey to be exact.  I broke the rules and used a very pretty stretch viscose crepe from Emma One Sock.  I made the size 12 (I'm regularly a size 6) with a few minor adjustments.

At 5'4"  I am also short waisted so I shortened the back and front waist length by 1".  I also shortened the sleeves from 18" to 16" simply because of personal preference.  I think a shorter sleeve makes the dress look younger and "fresher".

I lengthened the dress ties by 3" (wish I had added more to wrap the ties around my waist and not just to tie at side waist) and I added a single row of top stitching.

Because I was working with a crepe which has more body than a jersey does, I decided to add more weight to my hem and weigh the skirt down.  My hem is 2" wide with 3/8" folded under and stitched for a cleaner look.  

wrap dress hem I also added clear swimsuit elastic to the neckline to prevent it from stretching out. The elastic should have been added before I finished the neckline but I didn't realize I had a problem until after it was finished.

I also took in the sweep of the hem 1" per side seam for a total of 4".  

And that's it!  This dress was super easy to sew and I think there will be several more additions to my closet.


Happy Sewing!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day I heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

  • I’m just too happy that everything is in place for me now. I would gladly recommend the use of spell to any one going through marriage problems and want to put an end to it by emailing Dr Emu through and that was where I got the help to restore my marriage. WhatsApp +2347012841542
