Thanks again everyone Smiley

Stemsu: here's the link http://www.flickr.com/photos/goatsfoot/3176654826/(click through the pictures for the different steps) it's not for the exact same dress so you'll have to get your head around it but I found it much easier than the instructions with the dress pattern so I hope it helps. Oh and the burda pattern does come in various sizes so hopefully you'll get away without having to redraft it Smiley

Great idea! My half slip has been AWOL for months now but I'd never have thought of making one weirdly! Thanks Smiley

Thank so much eveyone Smiley I really should get around to posting more often Wink

I'm sure it'd be really easy to make a top, you'd just need to lengthen the bodice pieces a bit i would think (disclaimer - I've not tried it!)

If anyone gets stuck with the facing on this pattern let me know, I have a link which explains it a lot better than the pattern does.

Love it! I know it's not really a compliment when I say it looks shop-bought but I mean it looks very professional! And I know what a pain velvet is to work with so I'm doubly impressed!

Thanks o much Smiley And I'm really glad people are liking the first dress, I was worried it was a bit too fussy

Thanks so much Smiley

Dane: It's probably a pretty easy dress to make if you're used to using a pattern, making facings and/or gathering threads. It was my first time on all of those... But I'm not the world's greatest sewer by a long stretch, still learning so I think you should definitely give it a go Smiley And remember seam allowances aren't included in the pattern - even though I knew this I still kept forgetting and cutting things out wrong...repeatedly... Good luck!

Haven't posted anything here for ages, making lots but never seem to get proper pictures. Anyway here are 3 coffee date dresses from Burdastyle's free pattern, I love how they turn out and always think they're easy until I make another then it all comes flooding back! But I think I've almost got them down now!

Most recent one, ignore the odd face please! The fabric was 50p/m and I already had the zip so this dress cost less than 1!

First one I made, also with 50p/m material and free zip.

And one without a ruffle with highly expensive 1.99/m ikea fabric Wink

Thanks for looking Smiley

I'd forgptten all about trying this out! But now armed with a tute I shall give it a go! (as soon as I have time to make stuff for me rather than the shop!) Thanks so much for the tute Smiley
