Description

I decided to use a burda magazine pattern, 2009/04, dress 115. It is a simple sheath dress with a pretty decent fit, for petite!! I really liked the pattern before as it is a really interesting pattern, but I never had an excuse to make a dress like that. So I thought– this is perfect for my qipao!
I made the following alterations:

the slits in the front/back is eliminated, instead, I left two slits on the sides, all the way up to my thigh.
I changed the front shoulder seam a little so that it meets the collar in the center
I added an asian style collar
added piping at the shoulder seams

    It’s a great dress! The fabric is sweet, and those shoes and gloves really bring out its chicness!

    I love your dress, and the fabric is perfect. i am so glad to see your dress, when i looked at the pattern and the picture in the magazine i could not really see it. However yours is so much more feminine and young.

    I really like the style of the dress and it looks lovely on you. Is there an invisible zipper on the side or back?

      thanks cherwinamy! I have learnt that I suck at side zippers, so this invisible zipper is at the back! :)
