Where dont you like the volume?
I'd just  take the skirtpart off and make it a 3/4 or  a 1/2 circle skirt.
Or and since it's a circle skirt you should have enough fabric to make any skirt you want : a-line, pencil, straight, and so on .

Found another tutorial, think this might be better as just " moving the waist " forward.

Burda's awnser :

thank you for your enquiry.

Please rest assured, that the photo matches pattern #106-092015, but much to our regret the stylist has not ensured that the seam is located in the right place. On the photo the wrap part seams to end in a princess seam but in real (in the pattern)  it is the side seam.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.
Kind regards

So, it looks like they had a photoshop f"ckup.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Burda 9/2015 pink wrap dress on: September 11, 2015 02:17:13 PM
Anybody who's got this issue and could look at it and help me out?

I wanna make the pink wrapp dress.
It' s the same pattern as the black wrap dress with sleeves .
But.....looking at the pictures it seems that the pink wrap dress has the wrap part sewn into the princess seam.....not the side seam like the black dress.
Line drawing for both is the same ...

Am i just looking at the picture wrong or shoud it be different patterns ?!?!

Couple of ways;

Assuming your machine goes crazy when you are at a " crossing".
Stop sewing just before you get to a different height, needle down.
Raise the pressure foot and put a piece of paper under it, not touching the needle but next to it.
Fold it if you have to.
The piece of paper needs to be as thick as the new height you will have to sew.
Lower the pressure foot  and it should be level with the new height.
Most of the times you just need to raise/ use paper on 1 side of the pressure foot but you can use 2 pieces , so on both sides , if you need to.

Clipping the fabric seams at an  90 degrees angle.
Top layer is gonna be the " longest" and cover the rest.

You can try sewing it on the bias, hell you all ready paid for it.
That will give you some stretch in all directions, but i dont know if its enough for you while performing.
I would use a stretch stitch ora small zigzag if you dont have a stretch stitch.

If it aint working out , since you like the fabric , i'd cut of the bottom part and turn it into a top.

Its basically a princesseam top with a band attached to it.
Just figure out where you want the band to sit .
Cut the pattern there.
Sew up top.

Band you should look at as two strips of fabric:
-fuse interfacing to them both.

Pin everything together : one band you pin good sides on the front , the other good side to wrong side of the inside top.
Your " top " will be sandwiched in the middle .
Sew together and you should have the perfect band.
