This dress has been in my to-sew pile for many, many summers. I'd pull it out and put it back. I happened to run across it a few weeks ago, and I promised myself that this is the summer for it.

This is Burda 7065. I think it may be out of print. The Simplicity.com website is horrible to navigate, so I'm not bothering to try and link to it. But I will say this, you can make a top or a dress and it's probably the quickest and easiest thing I've cut out and sewn in a while.

There are only 2 pattern pieces, the front and the back. I cut the size 16 and made a swayback adjustment and a full seat adjustment. I added 5" to the length because I wanted a midi length.

I rarely sew Burda patterns, so I don't know if this is common. But one thing about this pattern that stood out to me is how roomy it is in the bust and how "snatched" it is in the waist. I guess European women have big boobs and tiny waists.

I cut my elastic 2" shorter than suggested because I wanted to make sure it held the bodice snug.

I absolutely love this dress and I can't believe it took me years to make it. But, better late than never!

  4. Hard to believe that there are only two pieces to the pattern for this dress. It's gorgeous. I absolutely love the color too. I agree with about Simplicity's site. They really need to fix that.
