Description

This dress is based on a dress from burdastyle-magazine (issue 1/10). The original dress is made of sequin-fabric but I can’t see sequins any more so I used black fabric (trench-coat-like).
I had trouble with the neckline and had to fix it on the seam allowance.
I love the dress. It would be perfect for party-time ;-)

    hey the dress looks great on the model, but i am wondering about the horizontal pulling at the bust. Is she busty or is it just the way she is holding her arms? How much ease was the pattern drafted with? Did you change it?

    I am busty myself and beginning to sew to get around the fitting issues.

    thanks for any tips and info!

    Really simple but works ! This is a dress every one should have in their closet.

    Super cute! I’ve been thinking of making this but wondered what it would look like in a plainer fabric! Love it!
