    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.

      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.
