Burda Easy Fashion A/W 2013: Dress with the Peter Pan Collar

This is the third garment I have made from the current issue of Burda Easy Fashion – given that there are only 6 patterns in the magazine I definitely think I got my money’s worth!

I decided to make the colour block dress:

3C HW13 B

Thanks to my ever growing stash (no stash busting for me!) I did not have to look long for suitable fabric and came up with this:


I sewed the pattern without alterations apart from the length and I used the 3/4 sleeve option.


The pattern came together without problem. I used the pinless sewing method from the Craftsy course and so the body was finished after a couple of hours.

IMG_5050I am even happy with the way the zip went in.

IMG_5051I quite like the colour block effect. It looks as if it pulls in this picture, but it really doesn’t. I did not even notice it before taking the picture. I topstitched along the seam lines of the bodice.

One thing I am not sure about is the Peter Pan collar. I absolutely fell in love with it on the model and I like the look of it on my version. I even like the contrast of the masculine colours and the girly collar.


I am just not sure it is quite me… I don’t have any pictures of me in the dress as yet – my husband takes my pictures and with the days getting shorter we have not had a chance to take one during daylight hours. But as soon as I have pictures I will ask your good selves for opinions: Peter Pan collar yah or nay.

    I love the colour blocking on this – looks fabulous, creates a girly shape in those stern colours – fab!

    I’m on a total collar kick at the moment so I think that the peter pan collar is sweet! Will keep my eye out for your post wearing this dress as well. Looks awesome!
