My Zoe dress

Added Feb 2, 2008

My first Burda-style creation: the Zoe dress. Barely any alterations, just a bit off in the waist and a bit extra in the lower skirt area for a better fit. I made it in about 1 evening (cutting the fabric) and 1 day for the sewing. It’s so comfortable! And I’ve already had many compliments. Loving this dress!!

Material Notes

A grey wool blend with black flocked flowers

    Thank you! I just love this dress! Making it was so much fun as well. I may have made it a liiitle bit too short, but hey, with a pair of leggings and no bending forward, who cares, right?

    Like Mira said, eveyrone’s Zoe is different, but they all look great. I want to make it, but it’ll probably be for next winter.
