Description

This is my new years eve dress. I do like the side rouching and think it’s not bad on. I don’t thimk i will make another as there’s just to many dresses i want to try out there I .saw two of these dresses on here recently and both where fabulous so i thought why not give it a go. I decided to use this light fabric which was’nt my best choice. I really should’ve underlined it as normal lining would’ve been awkward with the wrap bodice. The bodice does have a self lining though.I made a quictk slip dress to wear.umder it which worked a treat. I will probably wear this again in the summer without the slip. Excuse my blowing kisses photos?? Who knew blowing a kiss would be so hard lol. X

    WOW-ZA! Mary, you are sizzlingly sensational in this dress! I’m trying to catch up with my favorites here in Burda Style and you never cease to impress. :-) I thought this dress was lovely in the magazine, but since you brought it to life, I am inspired to take a look again at this pattern and give it a try. You are already starting 2014 in style! Cheers!

      Thank you so much heather, i hope you had a great xmas and new year. I’m trying to resist buying new fabric to use my stash but it’s near impossible for me lol. I also want to try and finish all my half done abandoned projects. This is a great dress pattern and sews up so well x

      Thanks so much zsyzu, i made that many sequin things over the holidays i just wanted something different.. i just thought why not use this lighter weight fabric. I made a quick orange t.shirt dress for under it that i left unfinished. No one would be seeing it lol. But now i think i’ll finish that one as it looked really nice lol x

      Thanks kisses, it’s quite a light weight fabric hence the need of a slip but the pattern is really nice and this is a really good burda pattern x

      Thanks chula, well i hope it hid some of my excess pounds lol. I always gain weight in the winter and go up a size. I can’t help it as all i crave is comfort food when its cold . I love anything draped gathered or rouched anyway and this was perfect. Plus the pattern fabric distracts the eye lol x

    This dress looks great on you Mary and you have made it beautifully. I considered this pattern but I think I ate a little too much Christmas pud to look any good in this dress.

    This is a really pretty and elegant look. I think we’ve got similar figures and I’m so always interested in your choices, Mary. In consequence, my list of patterns to try keeps growing along with your posts! Thanks for sharing, as always!

      The dresses are nice, no doubt. But the first one made from a very particlored fabric so the draping isn’t seen, the red one looks very beautiful but it looks differently from yours as if it’s other pattern. Besides, your decollete is the best anyway:-)
