Description

I made this from some pink taffeta which I had left over with a few years from a previous dress. I added some brown lace to the bodice, as I thought it looked too plain in just pink , and I needed something glam for a wedding.

The pattern is from Burda Style Magazine 08/210 – The black tulip dress.

It’s really comfortable to wear – the pockets are a lovely touch. The lining was dropping a little – as the taffeta is stiff and stands out a little from the body – if I was making it again I would shorten the lining slightly. As it was I just used a few small hand stitches to pull the lining up slightly towards the waist on the inside.

    I Love it in the gorgeous soft pink, and the bow looks awesome in taffeta adds volume!!

    A cute and pretty piece, with a great touch of carrying off the theme using the clutch bag. Your decision to add the lace has given it that extra glamour.

    The design of the dress suits your body shape and I’m sure you get many compliments no matter where you wear it.

    I thought I’d seen this somewhere before. It’s still lovely though. I really love that pattern, and it’s wonderful in taffeta, one of my all-time favourite fabrics!

      yep I uploaded it a little while back , but had used an account linked to facebook instead of this account – but the Burda team kindly sorted out the account confusion for me:)
