Description

It took me more than two years to make it…but eventually I have my new dress and I wore on New Year’s Eve. I added the long sleeves using a knit sleeve pattern from the same Burda issue.
I find it one of the best Burda designs of all times

    Thank you for your nice comment on my version of this dress. I like your idea of adding just a pop of colour with this purple stripe.

    I adore the contrast in colours! The detail is beautiful – sometimes the best projects really do take some time.
