In an old issue of the Burda magazine (07/2008) I found the Designer Pattern (no. 127) for this skirt and blouse and loved it from the beginning. For I long time I was looking for just the right fabric and found it last spring in London. It’s a silk (quite stiff/rigid?), similar to tie-silk and perfect for the dress. It was quite easy to sew, just had minor difficulties with the pleats in the front and due to those with the correct fit. The blouse closes with a zipper in the back. I am really proud of it and worn it looks even better. And at least I found the perfect shoes to go with it, but that’s another (long) story….
