Description

I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw the April issue. I used a medium weight fabric with a nice drape. The dress was not very easy allthough there were illustrated instructions is the magazine and finally I made it my own way. The pictures don’t justice-the dress is much more pretty in person.

    When I first saw this design in the magazine, I didn’t really like it. But now I’ve seen your dress, I might give it a try. Absolutely stunning! Congratulations!

      If you make it you will love it, it’s much better in reality than in the photos because the front wrap has a very nice movement. Thank you very much for your comments!

    The dress looks great. I made this style with the top only. I was quite tricky construction wise and I had to adjust the pattern to make it higher at neck because it was too low cut. But I really love it and it’s fun to wear.

      Yes it was a bit tricky to costruct mostly because of the burda instructions! I didn’t make any alteration to the neckline. Thank you very much for your comments and I would love to see your top version!

    Could this dress open enough in front for breastfeeding?

    Very cute, and I love your choice of color! I was attracted by the design as well when I saw the dress in the magazine, but I wasn’t sure about this look for myself. Seeing your lovely version makes me rethink that :)

      Thank you very much! I was attracted by the pattern and the sewers’ versions but I wasn’t sure either. It’s an interesting design but looks a bit akward at the pictures. In reality it is much better and I highly reccomend it!

    This looks great! I have just finished the blouse version myself, but it has a slightly awkward length on me. It was an experiment with funky fabric and a funky shape:-) This colour looks great on you. Very summery. I might attempt the dress version as well, seeing how beautiful it looks. xx

    It is very nice indeed! I like the bright colour much better than in the magazine and it is so yours! As for me your dress forms a nice silhouette which changes the style into elegant and it’s obvious that it’s really worthy to make:-) Beautiful pattern, beatiful woman, and beautiful pictures:-)
