Hope Valley, Uni...






Figure following sheath dress with tulip skirt. I made this in grey suiting with a grosgrain ribbon trim. Is from Burda Style Magazine 08/2009.

Really easy to make and flattering over stomach ;-)))

I wore this dress all winter needs drycleaning so spent quite an amount at the cleaners!

Material Notes

Grey wool suiting, grosgrain ribbon

    I love the textured look of the fabric, and especially the bow :)

      Hi. Thanks! It’s from the Burdastyle Magazine 08/2009 pattern 128. Someone else mentioned that they had made one the same from a Vogue pattern but I don’t know which one sorry.

      Thanks Ralf. Got the material off eBay bit of a risk but it worked out ok.

      The pleating is my favourite feature as it hides quite a bit ;-))

      Thanks! Did you make any of the other pieces in that section? I really loved them all but haven’t got around to having a go at any.

    Nice dress,but are you sure it’s from the Burda Magazine? Sorry for the question, it’s just that I have made one exactly the same from a Vogue pattern… Either way, it’s really lovely.
