Burda 7202
Pattern Description:
Dress and shirt with draped cowl neck. The shoulder seam leaves gathers and a raw edge exposed, adding a modern, deconstructed touch. The bias cut shirt has a wide hem band that ties in a bow.

Pattern Sizing:
Sizes 10 - 22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I made the top, I like the band and bow on the hip.

Fabric Used:
Polyester charmuse in a ziggy print.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None, which is VERY unusual for me!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Maybe. The style is unique. But, if made out of a completely different fabric and contrasting hip band (and maybe adding sleeves) it would look different enough for two to fit into my wardrobe. Or I might make the dress.
Yes I recommend this pattern.

Conclusion:
This top was quick to make and is fun to wear. I made the project harder than it had to be by choosing a slippery chramuse fabric. The pattern envelope recommends jersey and crepe, I would suggest those fabrics for a sewist who is not experienced with sewing on the bias.
The top requires quite a bit of material due to the bias cut. The dress, which I did not make, is cut on grain.
I liked the edgy deconstructed look with the exposed raw edges at the shoulders. If this look is unappealing to you, the shoulder can be sewn with a plain seam.
Bias cuts dont ravel much, but some materials, like the charmuse I chose, will fray even on a bias. To prevent excessive raveling, I stay stitched near the raw edge with a straight stitch at the shoulder, then with a narrow zig zag stitch in the cowl neck. Note that edge of the cowl neck in front is also left unfinished. The back of the neck and armholes are finished with narrow bands.
