I made this dress from a burda 2/2009 (http://www.osinka.ru/Zhurnaly/2009/burda/burda_02/slides/26.html) pattern. I think I chose the wrong fabric, it should have been more flowing, like the one on the picture, but I didn’t have a suiting fabric at home. Also I lowered the waistband, so it would be on my waste instead of under the bust. I’m not satisfied with the necline, it holds a bit oddly, I wasn’t sure how to make the neck (my Burda’s instructions are in russian, and I don’t speak russian that good), so I improvised:D
