Purple Silk Dress 111, Burda 11/2008

My new year’s eve dress! The pattern follows the Burda Dress 111 from the Nov 2008 issue perfectly. I first made a black cool wool version, then my mother made this for me. Silk is just too tricky for me to work with: I am not there yet.

Material Notes

Purple Silk, invisible zipper, Geox black Pumps

My best friend (in the pic to the left) that had the patience to give volume to my sad straight hair! She’s gorgeous!

    Silk is tricky. The secret is to dip the fingertips in water before you touch it and make sure you’re a bit wet when you work with it :) Perfect tip for beginners…The dress is lovely!
