It's my birthday today and Burda Style 6829

I didn't have time to hem my sleeves, it was time to roll; however,
I am so unbothered lol! I also made my crossover crossover a
little more, just my preference..


 Today is my birthday, yay! I love birthdays, I mean who doesn't love getting gifts, right?! I knew I had to have this dress ever since the pattern was released, and then when I saw Adrienne's version; I was sold!


 This dress comes together relatively quickly, other than the fact that I needed to underline my dress in tricot fabric due to my fabric being a light color.  I didn't have any difficulty constructing this pattern, but Lawd if I wasn't praying to be able to fit into this dress lol! I should have added a half inch at least at the waist, but my next version I definitely will. I made the 44 and added an inch to the hem as to make sure I had enough coverage when I sat down for the wrap part of the dress.

I'm glad that I added that underlining, yay, no show threw!

 
  Overall, I am really pleased with this dress. I loved how quickly this dress came together, even with having to underline the dress, which I underlined every dress piece, except for the sleeves. I am planning on cutting out another sooner rather than later, that is how much I love this dress :).

 Ladies, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am off to go and enjoy the rest of my day!
