Benesov, Czech R...
Dress made with Burda pattern 101, Ferbruary 2011. I altered it a bit, I made it a bit looser so that I´m able tu put it on without the zipper (I´m not a fan of zippers in dresses). The fabric has such a romantic name Josephine (I´m not sure it´s suitable for dresses, though..). I´m not sure I love this dress: the neckline is very low and wide, and I don´t know if the waistline is flattering on my short figure (those Burda pictures with tall and slim models are a bit misleading! :) I´m probably going to make this pattern again, but with some alterations. I made size 38 and it fits ok, I think, however it might be sligtly loose in the shoulders – I should have maybe fixed that.
