Burda 7828 has a summer knit dress but a long sleeve top - switch the pieces and you get a knit dress that can be layered for Winter - fabric provided by Pitt Trading called Marrikesh.
|Winter Burda 7828|
|Love wearing this dress with my Quart coat: my Pitt Trading Winter look.|
Pitt Trading just happened to have a lovely red fold over elastic I used on the neckline of this dress to go with this Marrikesh print.

Sylvia did a good job tempting me with some lovely prints but I stuck to this Marrikesh print with a contrasting trim.
So no need to line this dress for everyday wear. I've worn this dress a few times now.
I originally thought to make this fabric into the same style top bu decided to make this into a winter workout top using Kwik Sew 3567.

It get a bit chilly in the weights room at the moment.
|That's a measly 10kg bar. You gotta start somewhere.|
|I'm trying to choose a weight #newbie.|
I do prefer like wearing this top with jeans, so it's very versatile.
Jillian at Sew Unravelled also gave herself the challenge of working with the latest lycra prints from Pitt Trading this month. Jillian has stretched herself with sewing lycra but you'll love what she's created using Jalie's latest legging pattern Cora. Jillian's done an awesome job. You have to have a look at her latest post.
Thank you to Sylvia and Julia for providing me with these fabrics and Susan for her amazing sewing knowledge.
PS: I do have enough of this print and powermesh for a pair of bathers.
