This is based on the Burda pattern (Modell 122 Burdastyle 05/2011) but significantly altered, based on the input from Gretchen Hirsch’s online sewing course at Craftsy.com – boned bodice and several handsewn finishes and techniques.
I chose (a probably totally unsuitable ;-)) thin cotton for the fashion fabric, so underlined the skirt section as well as the bodice – and it worked out fine!
The bodice has 11 boning channels and is boned with spiral steel.
