Coming up for the next several weeks we are debuting a handful of designer-esque exclusive patterns! These special designs were download pattern extras in previous German issues of burda style magazine, and we are happy to bring them to the BurdaStyle.com community. This Asymmetric Dress is the first one we are publishing, and it is bursting with luxury and style.
This silhouette glides over the body beautifully and the pleats are perfectly placed for a flattering style. The one-shoulder design is particularly popular this season and spotted on multiple designers’ runways during fashion week. What makes this dress so lovely is the fluttery sleeve attached to the one side.
Many designer are embracing this trend and it seems that the direction is going to the one shoulder dress with some sort of sleeve attachment.
We suggest sewing this dress in a silky crepe satin, because it has an exquisite drape, a lovely sheen, and makes dresses extra sumptuous. Wear to a summer wedding or party with a nice matching pair of pumps, clutch and jewelry. We would steer away from wearing any sort of necklace with this design, as it interferes with the asymmetrical neckline.
