Semi Completed Project: Burda 8995

I completed the dress portion of Burda 8995 today.  Still to be finished is the black short jacket topper.
My plan is to finish up the jacket next week.  I need to do a couple of little projects brfore that.  Then, back to my lilac fabric and vintage Butterick 4228.  I do like how the fabric complements this 1960s style sheath.

Please let me know what you think!


  1. Absolutely a great match of fabric and pattern choice! It's going to look really elegant with the jacket too.

  2. Ooh Ilove the fabric choice . It has a very sixties Tiki Lounge vibe!

  3. Love the dress and the colors, I think a black jacket would look great with it. Great job!

  4. Looks like you did a great job tailoring the dress! Thanks for linking up to Sew Woodsy!
