Schumacher Cocktail Dress

Added Jan 16, 2009

Seaside, Califor...






This dress was a blast! The skirt is wool crepe and the top is sheer china silk. I had a bit of a hiccup when I cut my patterns pieces out and then read in the magazine that they don’t include seam allowance! Luckily, the dress came out fitting like a glove anyway!

Material Notes

China Silk, Wool Crepe





Here is the Burda Link to the original dress

    Hi I made this dress too. I went to a wedding with it so I’ll pictures soon… I also was very surprised to see that I had to cut the allowances after I already sew everything, and ended up ruining the top part, and had to sew it all over again from scratch. Sometimes I just think the people in Burda like to abuse us… :-)

    Does anyone know how I can get the pattern for this dress or where I can order the Burda 12/2008 issue?

    I know this dress! Burda 12/2008! I loved it so much but I ran out to buy the magazine a day too late and the 01/2009 issue was already out. So I ordered the back issue and can’t wait to receive it.

    Question: you are an intermediate sewer, I’m a novice. Do you think I can try making the dress? (I can turn to my mother on weekends and ask for deperate help). In your opinion: was it tricky?

    Let me know!

    (I love your version of it: simply perfect)
