For last christmas I needed a “Red-Carpet-Dress” – the theme of our work christmas party. I looked through my old Burda magazines and found the perfect pattern in 12/2008. Then I also found immediately the perfect fabric, a duchesse satin (silk) and was able to finish the project in no time.
When I wore the dress that evening I got a lot of compliments and felt comfortable wearing it.
