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).

Ray of Sunshine (DIY Shift Dress)

It's only right that I add my ray of sunshine to these gorgeous summer days before the season is over. fullsizeoutput_326f

I made this simple shift dress using Burda 6721 and added lace sleeves just to make it different from the other shift dresses in my closet. I am pleased with the results.


Since I have made multiple dresses with this pattern, I will not be going into any details. A review of B6721 can be found in my previous post here.


Below are a couple of the other dresses I have made and blogged about in the past using  this easy pattern.
