Description

A simple sheath dress that would look much better in neutrals (as a basic work dress) or floral cotton (as a summer dress). Instead, the magenta silk-cotton blend makes it look like a fail bridesmaid dress.

It’s super easy to make, though. Burda magazine Feb-2009, dress 124A (I don’t believe this pattern is available for sale on BurdaStyle, as of the posting of this project).

    wear black sandals/heels and bold jewelry with it, it will take away from the whole bridal thing :-)

      Thanks! Yes, black heels & big necklace would add some edge to an otherwise plain girly dress

    I think it would make a cute blouse! I like the sleeves and the V back. :)
