I finished my Burda 1-2008-113 dress today. Above, on the dress form. I’ll probably wear it to work on Friday and will take photos then. In the meantime, I thought I could show some photos of the pocket construction. Which for me, was the most intimidating thing going in to this pattern. Overall, it’s a neat design feature. But, you should make sure your dress fits before attempting as it makes it very difficult to make any adjustments after the are sewn. Also, I would interface the openings to keep everything nice and crisp. Finally, I would make the bindings smaller. I found it too chunky for my taste. I think a thinner binding would be more attractive.
Mark the seamline on the binding. Mark the binding placement on the front and back of dress.
You should have 1 cm wide space for the zipper tape to show through on the right side
The first round of topstitching secures the short side of the binding.
It was actually not that hard. I didn’t have to rip any of *this* out. Ok, seriously. I’m going to sew the buttons on to my Poet Blouse.
