Burda 7178 – Retro-Style – Perfect Valentine’s Day Dress

Hello everyone!  It’s February, and you know what that means–Valentine’s Day is coming!!!  In preparation for the “LOVE” day, I decided to share this Burda 7178 – Retro-Style – Perfect Valentine’s Day Dress with you.

Burda 7178 - Retro-Style - Perfect Valentine's Day Dress

While February 14th is known as a day to celebrate love by couples, if you go to the greeting cards section of your local convenience store, it’s quite clear that Valentine’s Day is definitely marketed to EVERYONE.  So whether you’re celebrating a relationship love, family love, friendship love, pet love, or self love, I wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day!

My husband and I have a wonderful weekend planned.  I’ll tell you more about it in next Wednesday’s post.  I’m working on a red dress to wear, but if it doesn’t work out, I’ll wear this pink cutie instead.

I’ve had this pattern in my stash for quite a long time.  It’s the collar on View C that drew my attention, and of course the Retro-Style is so right for me.  Although the fabric suggestions call for wovens, I opted for a knit (as usual).  If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that the majority of my garments are sewn with knits.  The sizing for this pattern is very limited. It’s available in sizes 12 – 22, so if you’re outside of this range and haven’t learned how to grade commercial patterns up or down for size, this one won’t work for you.  However, as I’ve mentioned before, if you’re interested in learning how to grade patterns, you can always check out this VIDEO from Andrea with Sew To Fit.  She does a great job explaining the process.  Follow her instructions, then you too can make this dress for Valentine’s Day, or any other occasion.

This is a pretty simple dress to sew, with 8 pieces (four being facings).  I omitted the back slit, which eliminated the need for piece #6, so only 7 pieces needed to make the dress.  Oh, how I love a simple sew that turns out looking like I could have purchased my garment from any high-end boutique.  I’m saving this one for a date night with my husband.

    When fixing a clock, use the Arrow Keys or WASD to move your cursor. To pick up an object, press Z. Move the object into the proper outline to restore the clock. One of the proposed changes to NFL playing rules brought forward last week was a proposal by the Eagles to require game clocks to display tenths of seconds for the final 30 seconds of each half. Blue Raspberry Rescue – NEW – Online Game Read the analogue clock and find the correct time in words. Games lasted 2:35 this spring compared to 3:01 in 2022 as pitchers were given 15 seconds between pitches to throw the ball when the bases were unoccupied and 20 seconds when runners were on base. To speed up the pace of the game, MLB wants to cut down on the number of times pitchers and batters are allowed to stop play. This is a mini-game to learn and practice telling the time in English. Students can interact with a clock to change the time and there is also a mini-game which involves matching a time phrase to a clock.
    Bethesda’s saga has evolved over the years, but – with Oblivion’s permission – Morrowind will always be one of the community’s most beloved adventures. Here at MeriStation we have declared ourselves fans of the game on more than one occasion, and how could we not, as it was one of the most important titles that laid the modern foundations for a genre 20 years ago. How to get started with play-to-earn games? Evoland is one of the most interesting role-playing games available at most secure browser for Android. It is not an open-world game such as The Elder Scrolls: Blades, but takes on a history of video gaming approach. If you’re thinking what early games looked like you must look at the beginning of the Evoland, but what’s interesting is that as you progress during the game and get upgrades, the whole interface of the game changes and will look like the games of today.

    Football League World take a look at three potential Patrick Bamford upgrades for Leeds United. Leeds finally scored themselves five minutes later – Liam Cooper heading in from a corner – and David de Gea reacted superbly to repel a crunching Raphina volley early in the second half. Leeds Utd at home (19 matches) compared to league average at home Under 2.5 percentage is 0 for Leeds United. This is based on an average goal count of 0 from both teams. This means that 0 of the 0 matches Leeds United has played has had less than 2.5 goals in total. HALF-TIME: LEEDS UNITED 1-1 NEWCASTLE UNITED.

  19. Tracy

    Great fit!!

  20. Susan Child

    Stunning! Love the fabric.

  21. Talisha

    Very nice! I love the look and the fabric!! Burda patterns read a little different. They do not give the finished measurements so how do you know which size to cut?

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Talisha! This one actually had the finished measurements on the tissue paper. When they don’t include the measurements, you have to measure the pieces yourself, excluding the seam allowances. It’s a hassle, and I don’t know why they don’t include finished measurements on all their pattern pieces.

      1. Talisha

        Good to know! Thank you for the response.

  22. Vicki (Sewnaptural)

    Perfect dart placement. Yiu are lovely as always. You go Anita!!

  27. Terolyn

    Hello Anita! How did you get you clutch and your shoes to match perfectly? I look forward to Wednedays to see your new posts and thanks for the video link I also need right now! God bless

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Terolyn! Isn’t it amazing! It just happened. I used to make and sell crochet purses and this fabric was the lining for one of the purses. It was stashed away until one day I wanted to make a clutch to match these shoes. I went online searching for a matching fabric but couldn’t find one. I went back to JoAnn’s where I purchased it but they no longer had it either. So I just took a chance and looked through my stash, remembering I had something similar. Imagine my surprise when I pulled it out and it was a perfect match. Thank you so much for following my blog. I appreciate you!
