Coctail dress for my niece ;)

Added Jul 29, 2013

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






The dress is based on Burda 7/2008 pattern # 107
This pattern has pockets in the side-seams, but I thought this dress would be better without because the fabric are so light.

Material Notes

I have used black linen and satin together.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Casual, Evening Wear
Linen, Satin

    Very pretty dress. I have just made the pattern for this dress/top, so I think you have excellent taste in patterns.

    I like the way you combined two fabrics – it framed the floral print and emphasized its beauty. Thanking to that the outfit is good for work as well as for leasure time. The dress suits her very well.
