Description

My house dress was constructed a couple years ago during the Balmain shoulder craze. The pattern is from Burdastyle magazine issue 09/2009 dress 112. This pattern has some really lovely details in the pleating and shoulder pieces that can be better appreciated in the technical drawing. It would look lovely in a solid, but as it happens the front pleat is just perfect for featuring a house.

    oh I remember this pattern! Yours is fantastic, I really love this print too (and I’m normally a solids girl so that’s saying something!). I must dig out this issue from my archives.

      This pattern is dress # 112 from burdastyle magaizine 09/2009. I looked through the burdastyle.com pattern store and was unable to find this dress. Unfortunately I think the only way to get the pattern is to find the September issue from 2009. I would check ebay and etsy. I found one copy on ebay, but the issue is in Russian http://www.ebay.com/itm/Burda-Fashion-pattern-magazine-09-2009-/190874255144?pt=Magazines&hash=item2c70fdff28. It might be difficult to sew the pleats without instructions. Sorry I couldn’t be more help. Hopefully burdastyle.com will continue to add patterns from years past.

    What a cute dress! The house on the center front caught my eye. It is almost identical to a house belonging to my friend in Zurich! How odd that it would be on a fabric.

      What a funny coincidence! Sounds like your friend might need some of this fabric too. The fabric is actually still for sale at Northlight where I bought it. I included more details about the shop and online store in my blog post if you’re interested.
