I made this dress some time ago but never got around to posting it here. This is the first dress pattern I drafted myself. It has princess seams, three-quarterish sleeves and a belt made to match.
You can read more about this dress on my blog, which I only started recently. So feel free to come visit me there!
My reply to requests on pattern posting: I’m very happy that you all like the dress and would like to see a pattern upload but unfortunately I don’t think the pattern would be of any use to anyone else because it fits only my size exactly, which is quite different from the standard sizing. Also I messed up with the sleeves and had to cut them several times to get a good fit. I don’t even know if I have the pattern piece for the sleeve anymore…:( I would feel bad uploading a pattern that other people can’t use properly. But the dress is really only a straight forward princess seam dress. To achieve the same or a similar style you could try these Burda Patterns: 3274, 8351 (styling and fabric choice by Burda is quite hideous on these two :) , or even 7727 (which only seems to be available on the German site). Happy sewing!
