Description

This is one of my favorite patterns, #114 Burda 05/2009 and I have used it several times. The fabric is a bit special and I choosed to use black polyester blend with “wrinkles” for the upperpart and for the skirt I have used a very shiny abstract checked fabric with gold and and since it was a little tranparent I deceided to use lightweight jersey as lining. The dress has rubberband around neck and at the end of the sleeves.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!!

Material Notes

Polyester blends, jersey lining for the skirt.

    You are never tired to make us surprised and amazed with your taste at matching patterns and fabrics. It would never occur to me to join such fabrics in one dress. But yours is very nice, smarty and although we got used to your bright outfits, you look absolutely lovely in this black dress!!!

    Merry Christmas to you too Ellen. You look wonderful in this very cool dress and even though you have used this pattern lots, it looks totally different in these two fabrics.
