burda wrap dress revisited

 This winter I made a burdastyle wrap dress that I love every time I where it.  (blogged here) (affiliate link)  And I was convinced I needed another one in different fabric that I could love equally.

So, for Easter, I used that wrap dress pattern to make this beauty.  The fabric is a cotton eyelet with a navy blue silk lining.  My last one was made of cotton sateen and a cotton lining and it had a lot more body than this version.  I absolutely love the soft drape of this version and the silk feels wonderful against my skin.  I think I may be spoiled from ever using anything but silk for a lining again.

I skipped the zipers on the sleeves.  They have proven to be completely unnecessary so I just continued the dart out to the hem.  The big change I made is that I slimmed up the back.  I actually just cut it down one size and then only added seam allowances to the shoulders.  This worked great for me though it may not be the preferred method of alterations.

 What pattern do you sew over again with virtually no changes ... just new fabric?

If you are interested in hearing more from us, there are a couple ways for you to keep in touch!


  1. I love that green eyelet fabric! And the dress is so cute on you. Job well done!

  2. I love the fabric - the green is so pretty! I have made three Lady Skater dresses using different fabric each time. It's a pattern I'll use over and over now that I have the perfect fit for me.
