    Ahh! I wish I could look as fantastic as you do in off-the-shoulder dresses! The dress is so beautiful too, I love your fabric choice. ♥

    That turquoise has to be one of my all-time favourite colours for a dress! I love the bow on the shoulder, it’s a fantastic detail! This is another wonderful creation in your collection!

      Burda makes wonderful costume patterns! Now I’m sewing Marilyn Monroe dress and using Burda 2393-V.

      Thank you very much! :)

    I guess you were the queen of this party. The color is perfect and the petticoat gives it a vintage twist. Great work!!

    You must have been the life of the party in this dress! Absolutely stunning. Does the strap stay tied, or do you worry that it will come undone?

      Taffeta is great for ties and bows. The strap stayed tied and it looked great :).

    OMG, I too have the January 2012 issue of Burda, so when I read “dress 151” I started wondering what pattern you have used… and then in the description you wrote that it is the Wilma Flintstone costume! Your dress ia absolutely awesome, and I couldn’t even imagine that a costume could be altered in such way. Great job!!
