My first dress! (the BurdaStyle Dress)

Added Jul 15, 2012

by Monchitas

Montreal, Canada






This is the burda dress from the book.
I modified the pattern to have a line of color going through the center while the sides are in a contrasting fabric. I made this dress for my best friend’s wedding. Maria decided she wanted us to wear black with a few white flowers. So, here you have it! :)

Still a way to go for my future creations!

Material Notes

It was an excellent pattern to learn how to sew on curves and attach facings.
