Description

A couple of weeks ago I had this beautiful dream, it was like a black and white movie, and I was wearing a dress just like this one. When I woke up, I run to my desk and drew it, so I wouldn’t forget what it looked like. That same day an invitation arrived to my door, the appointment: a wedding, the dress code: black tie!
I don’t know if it means something or it was just a coincidence, but I rushed to the fabric store and bought this stretch silk satin and got down to work!
I used Burda pattern 101 7/00 as a reference and worked everything else directly on a dress form.

      Hello, coudre, the pattern I used as reference is in the July 2000 Burda magazine, but I have to tell you it looks very different. I changed the neckline and made the draping pieces on a dress form, there isn’t a pattern for those.
      I hope you can find the pattern, I’d love to see your version of the dress!

    What a gorgeous dress! It looks beautiful on you, and I am quite taken with the lines of it. Flowy, but very shapely.

      Thank you so much, plethora, that was precisely my goal, to make the dress fit closely but letting the satin show its “liquid” flow.
