This is a very popular dress from the cover of September 2010 Burda magazine. I fell in love with it from the first sight, but only got to making it last month. The pattern looked complicated, but all parts came together perfectly, like a puzzle. The only note I would have for those who want to make this dress- if you are narrow-topped (like me) you will need to reduce the neckline width on both back and the front. I narrowed the back part, but not the front, and it ended up sticking out, so I had to cheat a bit, making pleats and adding a covered button, which now I simply love- it added a cute touch to the dress, I think. I used Perfect Curved Seams technique when making this dress. Also I didn’t really like the panels, so I added a narrow 3/4 sleeve, which made it much more practical to wear all year round in Irish cool climate
