This is my latest dress. I used Burda Style #7517, the easiest dress pattern ever.
The pattern has pleats and tucks on the front and back. I left the back plain, no tucks. I wasn't into drawing attention to my back end. But I do love how they make the front of the dress look.
I also left off the ribbon trim that wraps around the waist.
It has a boat neckline and facing pieces. The armhole is finished with topstitched bias-cut stripes.
The pattern calls for a zipper at the side seam. I was going to sew in the zipper when I realized that it will work as a pull-over dress. Sew, I thought why bother with adding a feature that wasn't necessary.
The dress is super comfortable. I'm glad I left it a little loose in the back. I think this will work as a cute summer dress to kick around in.
The fabric is 100% polyester. I know it is not the coolest of summer-time fabrics but with the loose fitting style (and air-conditioning) I think it will work.
