1  Removing bulk from darts burda NR. 123-112011-DL in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by Nofuelleft on: October 29, 2014 04:59:57 PM
Ok, anybody any idea how to "solve" the following issue;
I wanna make the following dress in a nice thin faux leather with some stretch....
I've made it before in jersey a couple of times and i just love it.

The issue that i have is the bulk at the waist.
There are a lot of darts gathering there  so you will get some bulk , but with using the faux leather i think it might get to much....
Been searching online, but can find anything that might be the solution....

Anybody any idea's?

4  How to make this dress ? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Nofuelleft on: July 12, 2014 04:25:48 PM
I cant figure out how to make the top part of this dress:

It is somehow knoted, but i cant figure out how its done .
I have the dress right next to me , turned it every way possible and still dont see it .

i suspect it is somehow done like in this tut : http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/dress-with-knot-front-032012/instructions/1

But in the dress i wanna make there is no seam in the middle .
I'm not seeing something and i just cant figure it out ..... Huh

They are pretty easy to draw yourself, dont need a pattern for them  Wink
When you draw yours it should look some what like this one ;

How to draw it:

Fold your front piece in halve.
Put it on a piece of paper.
Trace the neckline from the side seam to the fold. Call that line A
Mark where the line drawn up from the apex hits your trace line.
Now decide how long you want your collar piece to be. Lets say 5 cm or 2 inch.
Draw a line parallel 5 cm / 2inch from  line A
Now adjust how you want it to be.

Cut out 4 because you'll need to use interfacing to keep it nice and tight.
When sewing the whole thing together bast collar to neckline first , than close side seams.
For the best result you need to use a lining or facings else it keeps " flipping"
