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!:)
