I made this dress at last. well it has been ready for almost 2 months now, but i finally wore this today for my husband’s birthday. I used a strech printed satin and black strech cotton blend, so i skip the zipper and didn’t make the pockets. Beside this 2 shortcuts, i think my dress looks very much alike the original version from the magazine. I absolutely love this dress and i got to many compliments for it!!

THIS IS BASED ON A BURDA PROJECT, but i just couldn’t figure it out how to register this while adding the project, the system kept asking for the project name and even when i wrote it a thousand times, it just didn’t work.

Material Notes

strech printed satin, black strech cotton blend
