I have been testing the Seamed Dress from BurdaStyle in quite a few variations and have decided on this version for my bridesmaids dresses. The black flower dress was my first tester with the long slim fitted dress with the standard BurdaStyle seamed dress bodice pattern. The original skirt is very similar I just added the two extra pleats at the top and a split at the back. I also added a waist band to break up the middle section.
After absolutely loving this style on, showing my sister (who was even more pleased) decided to go back to the fabric shop I originally bought my bridesmaid fabric from and bought some more in the same fabric but a slightly different colour and pattern. This made the white/blue and fuchsia version.
After a complete wardrobe makeover with a heap of these dresses I finally found the one, the BurdaStyle Bridesmaids dresses!!
