Description

From the Burda 08/2012, a dress in a nice stretch retro jacquard with shoulders yokes, folds on the neckline, carvings on hips & chest ; totally stretch black cotton-backed & slit at the bottom.

Shoulders yokes made in the black cotton and once the dress finished, i put some lacy stripes to highlight the curves.

Rimless zip on the side instead of the middle of the back to be more convenient.

I dread doing it due to the multiple pieces but once i get started, the dress is easy to make indeed.

It is very comfortable and i am proud of the result !

    The way you have added the lace to the darts is genius! I feel like I may have to steal that idea at some point :D xxx
