Description

The pattern (#133, Burda 5/2012) is a reprint of an afternoon tea dress pattern from Burda Moden 5/1961.

This dress is all about the back and I really like the way it came out.

    love love love this! I love the velvet version but have very little cause for evening wear these days so you’ve shown me it would be worth the effort in a nice soft ‘day’ fabric. Looks so good on you and I am so glad that you can still wear a bra with that back! YAY!

    Wow your dress looks amazing. I wondered how it would look in a less dressy fabric.

    You look great in this very pretty dress. Would make a stunning evening dress. Wish I still had the figure to wear it. I don’t, but my daughter does! Nice work.

    It’s beautiful! Does it stay on your shoulders ok, or does it slip off? I love the pattern, but if it’s a ‘slipper’, I may think twice…

    That is absolutely adorable! I thought of making that dress, too, immediately when I saw it. But not in velvet as suggested. You presented a very good inspiration here, I really love the fabric and the touch of colour you gave it!! Wish it was my dress ;-)
