Description

Shawl-collar dress, Burda08/2011 #125.

I’ve been dreaming about this dress for some time now but I couldn’t get the right fabric. Then I bought this wool/poly mix online very cheaply. I was drawn to this pattern by two elements – short sleeves together with a shawl collar, I love such combination and I often wear t-shirts with big shawls.

My modifications:
– I cut the skirt from three parts not five, because I didn’t want to complicate the pattern using this loosely woven fabric
– I skipped the pockets, they just didn’t seem right for this model for me, but I may add pockets on the skirt front
– I shortened the dress to just below my knees, the tea length cuts my legs in the worst spot possible

    What a great dress! I think that shawl-like neckline is very cool, I should that detail.

      Thank you! I fell in love with shawl collars after finishing this dress, I’ll definitely make more of them. :-)

    Love the dress and like you I so wanted to make this dress but still haven’t found the right fabric. You look great and the red and white is prefect

      Thank you! I was lucky to find that fabric. :-) I think you must make this dress someday, it’s a great pattern and I fell in love with shawl collars after finishing this one!

    Incredibly attractive and womanish outfit; I like the style, the pattern, the fabric used for the pattern and the way you combined the dress with that tiny cardi. This shawl bias collar catches the eye and really looks winsome in this fabric. Very nice – some kind of a modified vintage image and it suits you absolutely:-)

      Thank you so much! Now I must find some low neckline blouse to wear underneath. :-)
