Burda Style Cap Sleeve Godet Dress ★★

Burda Style Cap Sleeve Godet Dress 09/2014 #122

I did not end up having good luck with this dress. It is problematic to fit, especially if you’re not classic model sized. The lining doesn’t really work well and ends up riding up. And the front skirt curve, while it looks great on the model, ends up looking like a weird apron flap or something in real life. The front skirt wants to be flowy, because of the drape of that weird front curve, and the back skirt is almost tightly fitted.

Without wide hips, this dress probably works better. But with them, its almost impossible to alter this pattern to fit flatteringly.

I used this pattern for this dress: Science Girl Drinks Beer… yes, again.
