I have a Gala Dinner to go to and I made this dress using Burda 124B, 2/2009, to wear. The fabric is a cotton base with an organza overlay which has been machine embroidered to look like Broderie Anglais. I have read several reviews about this pattern, all saying it suits most figure types and I would think that is true. It was easy to fit and relatively simple to sew. I fully lined this dress in a cotton voile and piped the neck-line to give a nice finish as well as stopping the facing from showing. The line of daisies around the mid-drift were daisies that I removed from the left over fabric and hand sewed to the seam line.
