Orange fall

I fell in love with this pattern at first sight!
It is Burda 8/2011-125.
The difference is that I drafted longer sleeves (but then cut them away), inserted the zipper in the back and thus the collar is opened in the back.
After 3 rounds of fitting – I so love this dress!!!
You can see the fitting process here .

Material Notes

Knit blend in orange and purple, zip from stash




Fall, Winter
Garment Type

    Your dress is so lovely and you look beautiful in it. I have just looked in my magazine at the original and I would have completely ignored it if I hadn’t found your photo in BurdaStyle. Thank-you!!

    I liked the dress in the mag, but love yours. Beautifully executed. Well done.

    Your dress looks great! Did you modify the collar in any way, other than to split it to add the zipper?

      Yes, I actually folded the collar in half and then stitched it down. Forgot to mention that, sorry. In the magazine it is attached only by one side.

    it’s so cute! i loved this pattern too & thought about making the sleeves longer. why did you decide to make them shorter?

      Oh, in the rush to cut the pattern out I forgot to actually lengthen the sleeve pieces, heh. After putting them together I added another piece at the bottom of the sleeves but it looked bad, and since I didn’t like the above elbow length I chose to cut them shorter.
