Description

This is the burda 01/2012¤110 dress i made for my daughter. I loved her’s and decided to make myself one. I’m not a maxi fan but i loved this. It is slightly different to my daughter kelseys, mine has a wider shoulder more ruching at the side and a not so high split. My mum wanted to try it on and i think she looks gorgeous, i’m putting one on of mum in a wig as well. We look so alike. The wigs are just for a laugh at fancy dress parties x

      Thanks vinia, this is another great pattern and has such a lot of potential for altering it so it looks different x

    Fabulous dresses and even more fabulous models !!!! You all look so happy and cheerful, makes me want to go on holiday with you :-)) I actually copied this pattern when it first came out, but it looked so confusing and complicated, that I put it back in the magazine and totally forgot about it, until I saw your lovely creation. Tempted now to give it another try. As a matter of fact, annoyed at myself, cos I’ve ordered a similar butterick pattern, could have saved some money there, silly me :-(

      Thanks chula, this is a great pattern. I did/nt bother using a zip at the side as the fabric was jersey. I used elastic at the side to aid the rouching and it worked a treat. X

    My goodness! You really are a spit of your mum! And your daughter has the same lovely smile too! This dress really looks lovely and I completely understand why you wanted one for yourself! I do love my maxi dresses, so I might have to give this one a go too! ;-)

    If I hadn’t read your post thoroughly, I wouldn’t have know that was your Mum with a wig. I thought it was you. You both must have the best times together. I love this dress and it looks great on all 3 of you.
