Description

Hi! This is a really old pattern – it’s burdastyle magazine model 12-2004-107. I loved the dramatic neckline of this model when I saw it in the magazine in 2004 and I wanted to sew it. I traced size 34 but never made it. Last September I traced it again, in size 38 and now I finally made it. I’m not quite satisfied of the result because the dress is a little unshaped but I do love the neckline!

    The neckline is a distinctive feature of the pattern and although I’m not a fan of black colour, I like the way you made the dress. The contrast of textures adds some shine to the image.

    This is a gorgeous dress Liliv. I agree with IDia, it would be great with a pencil shape, but, you can still give it a shape with a cool leather belt. Great job!
