Saint James Knit
Knowing I can sew a garment for a tiny fraction of the retail price simply thrills me, and is one of the reasons I continue to sew.
Upon finding Burda 6722, I knew it was meant to be.
I rarely sew Burda patterns (no reason in particular) but that needs to change for their fit is always spot on! I made no pattern alterations other than shortening the bodice along the adjustment lines.
(more on border construction tomorrow on the blog)
Since I was unable to make a muslin for this dress, all seams were first basted before stitching and finished in the serger.
So if you’re in need of an instant gratification project with a RTW result, look no further than this wonderful ponte knit!
