I’m shocked no one else has made and review this dress here. (Burda Russia is a different story.) It’s a pretty dress, even if the front neckline drape isn’t as deep as promised by the pattern photo. I made mine in knit on straight grain rather than woven bias. And I had to add extra underlining layer as well as lengthen the lining layer to preserve my modesty. With the right Georgette you might be able to get away with just the shell & lining.
Shell fabric: Gold & mauve snakeskin print mesh jersey from Minerva Crafts
Underlining & Lining: Brown and Skin power mesh from Tissu Fabrics
