Printed Dress with Belt

Added Jul 13, 2014

Nedre Vats, Norway






I wanted to make a cross-over dress and had to look in my earlier Burda magazine to find one I liked, and I found this pattern #123 in Burda 02/2007. I love printed jersey and this is no exception. I have used a little rubber band at the end of the sleeves because I thought they where sticking out when I was wearing the dress. The belt is nice, even to wear with a black dress. This was a great dress for my niece, Ingrid :)

    I have this Burda magazine and this model is also one of my favorites as I like sewing jersey dresses but now I have so many clothes and I alway wonder when you find the time to make all those fabulous clothes. One day I will share one of them on my blog or my Facebook if you agree of course

    The style is a great one for summer and I can see you wearing a frock coat or a short jacket with it as well!

    Think you will be making this dress again: one in a digital print (like a starry sky) and one in a floral or vibrant colour mix.

    If you are ever in Toronto or New York City, pedestrians are going to notice the Howard Johnston name (it is a known hotel chain) when you walk by!

    Lovely dress, Ellen! I really like your solution with the sleeves. They fit perfectly. And the print is fab – as usual :) I hope you’ve had a great summer this far.

    Nice print and it suits the style. These style fits you as for me it would be too revealing at the bust area. Photos are also nice

    Gorgeous Ellen. I have had this pattern ear marked for years and yours is the first dress I have seen made up. You look lovely in this and you really do inspire me to get out the old Burdas and give a pattern a go. With a dress like this I need to do a lot of adjustments to the bodice so that the cleavage is not too revealing. But I can see that the body shaping is very easy to make up. Thanks for making this dress and showing us.
