Burda_07-2010-120_large

Description

What a light summery dress for the hot, hazy and humid days of summer here in the Big Smoke. I used only jersey for this dress – no chiffon as suggested – and it still looks lovely. Love the shirred under-bodice with the midriff accentuating the waist. Please visit my blog to read more about what I did with this really cool Burda pattern – 7/2010/120 – empire waist dress from the Desert Style collection of July 2010.

Material Notes

1/4" elastic, tricot lining, lightweight rayon jersey, 24cm invisible zipper, thread

      I think I’ve only ever seen it in Burda Style magazine July 2010 issue. It’s not available online here, unfortunately.

      Ha ha! So does DD3 – we’re the same shoe size, so she liked to raid my closet!

    I really like your version. I have been eyeing this pattern for a while but I am not sure if I am ready for jersey and chiffon yet. Apparantly it’s worth a try.
