Description

When I saw the dress in the magazine it became number 1 in my wish list. The only problem was the level of difficulty that scared me. It took me some weeks to finish it, when I was near to giving up I just put it aside, waited 2 days and tried again and again.
Well, as far as the sewing proccess is concerned: the V-neckline is too deep for my taste, I made it some cm higher. The starbusts are so beautiful, but are the hell to work with.
Frankly speaking I am quite satisfied with the result, although it was a challenge for me.
I was finishing to hem the dress watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and my look is inspired by it.

    Thank you for sharing, and for being honest about the difficulty of the pattern! it makes me feel better about struggling with it! I understand the feeling of just needing to put something aside a few days when it gets frustrating. I am glad you got to finish it, because it looks so great and is very inspiring!

    Great job! It fits you perfectly. Ever since I saw this pattern in the magazine I have been wanting to make it for my mother. I have more confident in this dress now that I have seen it looking good on a real person, not just on a model in a styled up fashion shoot from a flattering angle. You look amazing and that hard work most have been worth it, because you have yourself a beautiful and versitile dress there that will never go out of style.

    Oh, this is amazing! I was looking at this pattern, but frankly I didn’t think it would look this good. You pull it off quite nicely. Stylish, elegant and so Holly Golightly! Worth whatever it took to finish it! Merry Christmas!

      There is something special in it, I like the most starbust effect and V-neckline.

      oh mememe-1, I am so pleased to hear this. But you exagerate about my skills – I bought my sewing machine September this year, although I followed sewing classes at school 15 years ago! Thank you so much.

      This September??? I would have never guessed that… Then it’s even more impressive!

    Beautiful job and looks so stylish! I think you handled it right stopping and leaving it for a couple of days when you got frustrated rather than rushing it. I’ve just started trying to work that way and it’s much better for my nerves :-)

      Thank you, sewingfan1. This dress was a challenge to me as I have never tackled this range of difficulty. This project put me through to the next level.

    Loved that pattern too, and I agree the V-neckline was too deep. Yours looks fabulous, though.

      delphinette18, you are so kind! My Burda size is 40! And the only adjustment I made was to take 1 cm from the waist.
