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).

Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
