Description

My version of the Paneled Sheath Dress 09/2010 #122A
I already had this fabric and was not intentionally used a shade of purple which was used for the original Burda dress.
My fabric was not stretchy as suggested for this pattern, but I used it anyway and altered it on the back with a full length exposed zip and I think it looks very different that way so I’m quite pleased.
Used real leather for the sleeves as seen on the picture.

    I love it. The colour and leather trim are so on trend. This is much nicer than the Burda version. Well done!
