Treadlette Tuesday: An Asymmetric Dress

Today's Treadlette garment is this knit & woven dress made by me, Elizabeth! I chose Burda 6352 (shown below) because I loved the asymmetric shape and the use of both woven and knit fabric.

The top is a cotton jersey, while the skirt is a floral printed rayon challis with tons of swishy drape.

One note on this pattern: it runs VERY large. I went two sizes down from my usual size in the bust and waist and it was still incredibly roomy. I also cut the skirt just a bit shorter than the long version because I didn't want that front point trailing on the ground!

Otherwise, this project was super simple and sewed up very fast! Just right to add to my fall wardrobe!
