Description

I used a pattern from Burda Magazine #1/ 2011 for this dress. The pattern was a bit weird, especially the skirt bit. When I first tried the half-ready dress on, I looked like a snowman. The reason for that was that the skirt bit, was very wide on top and narrow on the bottom. As the top bit had some gathering on the waistline as well as the skirt, the overall image was really buffy. To avoid this “snowman” look (you can see that on the last picture), I turned the skirt upside down – connected the narrower bottom bit to the top of the dress. That worked out pretty good in the end.

Material Notes

I used some silky material that I found from an op shop close to my work.

    Thanks for posting, I have that Burda magazine and thought of making this dress. It’s sometimes difficult to get a good idea of a pattern from their photos, in this case a sitting model :) maybe her skirt looked bulky too.
