Black & White Party ;)

Description

This is still one of my favorite pattern; #114 Burda 05/2009. I have used wrinkle poplin and black cotton with embroidery (it’s not so easy to see it on the pictures).
I have cut the skirt on bias, and therefore it feels like it is a bit stretchy. At the empire waist it’s a tunnel, so you can have a ribbon with bow decoration. The dress has rubber band around neck and at the end of the sleeves. I wasn’t sure if I should use a white or a black zipper at the back, but I think I made the right choice with the white one :)
I have posted a dress like this earlier.

    Love this one too! And I just got an idea – how about sewing a few black buttons onto the white part and a few white ones below, on the black material? (Without the ribbon, of course). So, I guess you inspired me once again, Ellen :) Thank you for sharing :) I might make a dress like this myself, it is always a great choice for any occasion…

    You have a romantic and fragile look in this dress. I’d call it modern classics because of classic combination of colours and unusual mix of the fabrics.
