Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).


With warm weather on my mind, I've been trying to find ways to quickly fill up my closet with fun, handmade clothing. I found a great pattern to help me with this mission. I love how my first try went so i'll definitely be making a couple more. What makes it even better is that there are so many ways this look can be worn - with a belt, without a belt, with a blazer, with heels, the list goes on! FullSizeRender


Pattern used: Burda 6792

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. Exactly like it.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved it. No complaints here.

Fabric Used: Lightweight cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No. This dress is very easy to make and is great for beginners. There was no need for any alterations.
