Here's my new version of Burda 08-2009-128, in an electric blue wool crepe from Gorgeous Fabrics. I bought the fabric about 3 years ago, intending to make a Roland Mouret galaxy dress knockoff but time passed and here we are. I've never sewn with wool crepe before, and really liked the spongy softness and how easy it was to work with. It's very easy to wear, and this dress is super comfortable.
The dress has a little more ease in it than I'm used to wearing, but I think it works for a winter dress. I'll be able to layer a dress shirt underneath when it's really cold.
