Striped Midi Sweater Dress


I bought these really awesome sweater knit from Indie Sew – probably around 5 yards of it, because I had been on a look out for a black on white stripe for years to replace the one I made 4 years ago that has been quite worn out and is on camping duty. The material is thick and soft – and the right amount of width for the black stripe part!

My first project with it was the top shown in the last post. And then I decided to make a midi length sweater dress. I love some of the fashion outfits I see with midi sweater dresses and high heels, or with a leather jacket, sneaker and scarf.

I used a raglan sleeve BurdaStyle pattern, and it came out really great!


Yes it makes my back look great! 😀

  1. Is this a Burdastyle magazine pattern or an envelope pattern? Do you know the issue number or the envelope number? The dress looks great and I wanted to make one for my sister.

    1. I used BurdaStyle magazine – i think it was 2010/2 #112!

      Though if you have a stash – there maybe something similar already – this is a basic one and they use a similar base very often! 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for the pattern number. I started my Burda subscription in 2010 so I definitely have this issue!
