Burda's 7012 is a great dress pattern. It features two skirt styles: you can opt for a full, pleated skirt, or a slim-fitted pencil skirt. It has long sleeves, making it a great dress for cooler weather. It also has a neat detachable collar and optional bands at the waist, wrists and hem. As for difficulty, Burda has rated this as an 'average' pattern: its middle of three difficulty levels. There are currently no reviews of this pattern on PatternReview.com.
If you'd prefer a gathered skirt (like in some of the inspiration images), just gather the skirt panels, rather than pleat them. :-) You should also be able to easily shorten or lengthen the skirt using the 'shorten or lengthen' line on the skirt pieces.
This outfit was inspired by several outfits featured recently in ready-to-wear collections and popular fashion blogs. To see more inspiration images, have a look at our 'Dresses: Pleated or Gathered' board on Pinterest.
