Description

This is made from a little stretchy suede. I used pattern 116 from burda 10/2010 for the bodice. For the skirt I prefered a pleated one ( burda 11/2007, model 107), as i think is more flattering for my wide waist than the gathers. The dress came out very easily with no alteration and I am very pleased with the result!:)

    The dress looks lovely on you. The original neckline is much better on you than it was on my dress. I love the graphical look of the neckline with the sleeves. It kind of takes the little black dress to the next level.

      The cut out bust makes the dress kind of sexy and goes very well with the black fabric, but in your lace dress the bust is much better the way you fixed it.

    You are very kind Mary, thank you. It is really a a great pattern, very easy to sew and the result is an eye-catching, very unusual design.
