Description

I loved the simplicity of this pattern. Also decided to use silk organza for the underlining to give the boucle a little more structure and body.

      Thanks. I would love to go to the Kentucky Derby -one day. You are correct this is at the races in Britain. Next big racing dress up event is Ascot – dress nearly made and hat being in the process of being made!

    AAaww, did you make this for the Kentucky Derby or another race? Either way, I love the dress and the bright fuchsia accents. Nice paring.

      Thanks – it’s one of those dresses which seems to suit so many occasions – it has been to the races twice, to work and also made it to a christening!

      Thanks – it s a nice pattern to sew but do double check the sizing as it comes up huge if you go with your chart measurements as indicated by Burda. May be an idea t to first make a muslin and go from there.

    Dress looks fantastic! How did you go with the sizing? I had to size down to the smallest size and still found it very roomy. I’m normally 38 -40.

      Thanks! Yes that is my size too and I had to made sizing adjustments to get the right fitting, so I made up a muslin and went from there. I don’t really trust the Burda sizing chart so I always make up a muslin first to be sure.
