This is the A-line dress in last year’s burda from august. I made the peplum top version before, which is exactly the same, just a shorter skirt part.
The fabric is a kind of jersey, quite thick, appropriate for a winterdress. I thought the pattern matched the print on the fabric, it gives it a nice vintage feel.
The only alteration I made is the sleeves, that i made a little shorter, to keep it fresh and all.
I attached a (fake) leather collar, which doesn’t look as need as a i wanted. Anyone got any suggestions to attach a collar?
