Want a vintage-feel dress, that is still in style today? This dress is a great vintage Burda pattern, brought out from the archives in Germany and re-made and re-styled. It was originally published in Burda Moden 5/1961.
This lovely dress features a draped back, shoulder ribbon ties, and is made in a luxurious velvet. You could even lengthen the hemline to the floor for a dress fit for a fancy gala. Or you could make it in a floral print for a more casual day-dress.
