I made this last summer and it is my favorite dress ever made. I used the fabulous dress pattern 125 from november 2007, this pattern is just perfect: it has adorable little sleeves with gussets, and a very flattering neckline with pleats at the arms, so feminine and retro!! I have used this pattern again “here”: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/red-off-shoulder-dress/
The pattern called for a petticoat but I didn’t add it because I wanted to reduce the vintage look. I used a stretch satin with a snake texture (it isn’t visible at the photos but it is very pretty).
