Description

I saw this pattern in the 9/2012 issue of Burdastyle #124 and had to make it. I found the fabric I thought would go with it and this is the end result. Dress was made with 1.5 yards of satin and the contrast band is made of stretch poplin. I was please with this dress because it fit right the first time I tried it on. I cut a size 36 and hemmed it a bit but that was all.

I think you’ll enjoy making this dress. I know I did.

This dress was featured in the 5/2013 German issue of Burdastyle…I was so excited to see my photo and name in print!

Material Notes

      Thank you Pam! It is very flattering. I was originally worried about the empire type bust but it worked out ok.

    I loved this pattern when I saw it too. You did an amazing job. Looks beautiful on you. Is the satin that you used stretchy?

      Thank you! The satin wasn’t stretchy but the poplin contrast was and I was a bit worried about it but it turned out ok.

    This dress is beautiful and I too really like this pattern. I really like your 2 contrasting fabrics, they go really well together.
