Soul-kleid_large

Description

This dress is based on an older Burda-pattern (German issue), that I completed with the typical trumpet sleeves, Peter Pan-collar and a false button-facing. As the black wool crepe tissue is not opaque, I lined the dress with the same black and white mini-checked tissue from collar and buttons and let show it on hem.

    Thanks for your kind feedback! You can find the original pattern in the German Burda issue no. 11/2003.

      Hej Mitmit, tack sa mycket! ;-) I’ll check out the issue number and let you know. By the way, I would wear it all the time, too, but I made the dress for a very good friend of mine.;-)
