Dress B, but long like A. It's an odd waist placement, about 5/8" above the natural waist. She has a tiny waist so I lowered it. I almost never make Burda envelope, make that never actually. I do sew from the magazines and have for years. The addition of some illustrations do not make the instructions much better. It's very clearly shown in sheer fabrics, but there is no mention of lining the skirt and no amount to buy. The bodice has a ruched bias upper layer over a princess seamed bodice that has a lining. All in the dress fabric. As I mentioned, the skirt is not lined. That's one revealing dress without a skirt lining! Even if you make it in an opaque fabric a lining is really necessary to finish it. I have done very little fancy dress sewing in all of my years sewing, but I have some very nice sewing books for reference which this pattern really needs.
I have actually been doing some sewing, just not doing any photography. I do have some things to show you. Hopefully I'll get to it after Thanksgiving. We're going to have a house full of company. Our son is also coming with his fiance and our grandson! So, both of our children will be getting married next year. It's exciting.
In case you are wondering, I am not making a dress for myself. This is a small wedding and the black and white silk I made for my cousin's wedding will do perfectly. Thank goodness!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to my United States readers. It's my favorite holiday.
