Tilburg, Netherl...






Again from the May edition of burda (#113), this is a dress I completely fell in love with…

It is perfect for warm sunny days (though we don’t see much of them around here) with cute flowers. The fabric can be translucent so I lined the top. I added a belt, to make the it a bit more "dressed"and in a craziness moment, i decided to hand-sew beads on the belt… It turned out lovely!

    Does this longer version also include the button placket on the pattern? I’m trying to decide which pattern to buy.

      I have used the magazine patterns, but U think that this version is the simple one. On the other hand, you can get the shorter version and just add a tier …

      One more question; did the magazine come in sizes larger than a 42 or did you grade up?

      I went ahead and bought the short pattern because the skirt pieces are in both the instructions and I wanted to have the optional placket. I have graded the pattern up to a 46 but I haven’t done a toile yet.

    Love the beading. Great idea! And it’s a good combination of material and pattern.

      But you know what? I have spent a year in Ireland, and I actually like the weather better there (call me crazy). I even managed to get sunburnt in April when I was there, 3 times!

    I was thinking about using this pattern too, but I wasn’t sure it would suit me. After seeing this, I’m probably gonna make it, I just have to find a proper fabric. You look lovely in it! And taller too. :)
