Self Drafted Peony

I drafted my own bodice block for this dress and copied the style lines of Colette’s Peony dress, I then used the pattern pieces for the skirt.

    Very nice dress! I can see that your photos in your blog are much lighter – I think there is something wrong in BurdaStyle at the moment.. Your dress suits you so well and the color is perfect for you :)

      Thank you! Yes, I tried uploading a few times. I sent BurdaStyle an email earlier telling them about the problem.

      Hi, this is amazing dress! I also have a problem with pictures – when I upload them, they are much darker then in my computer. Did you get any response from Burdastyle? x
