FO Friday Fun

fo friday fun

Welcome back to another week of Finished Object Fun!

Burda 6/2016

This week I am sharing one of my recent finished sewing endeavors.

The pattern is Burda 5/2016, dress 105

I made mine in a jersey interlock, with a contrasting fabric for the pocket flaps, neck and extra sleeve border. I added the pockets in the side seams.
I shortened my dress to be worn as a tunic over leggings which I prefer.

What would I change if I made this pattern again?

As I am pear shaped, I would definitely leave out the pockets as it adds unnecessary bulk where I really do not need it ;)

That being said, I love pockets in clothing as I am always caring something around, usually keys and I like having somewhere on me to keep them - so maybe next time, make the pockets on the front of the dress.

I would make the neck-hem a little wider, as I feel it doesn't stand out as much as I would like it to, being the contrasting colour!

Overall I am quite happy with it, and it is really nice to wear :)

Have you sewed this pattern too?
How did yours turn out?

Have you managed to finish something this week?

Feel free to share all of your FOs below :)

Have a great weekend.
See you next week
