Being a log time lurker and admirerer of all your work, I thought I should finally get around to contribute myself.
Not entirely sure if the 90-ies count as retro yet (kinda hope not since that seriosly makes me feel ancient :)), anyway I recently made up a floral cotton dress after a Burda pattern from 1992 (M10435 F 513 and 514). I was originally a top and skirt but I knew I would get way more use out of a dress and therefore combined the two. Otherwise I changed absolutely nothing, it was a perfect fit.
The fabric has a slight stretch to it, which made the fit easy and the dress very comfortable to wear.
It has a full skirt, which makes it perfect for a twirl – and who doesn’t like a twirlly dress 🙂
Happy sewing ye all 🙂
