Description

I made the black (and white) dress around 2003… Its a Burda mag pattern, from November 1997 (!), model 136. The black dress has a black lace top sewn on white satin panels.
As lace dresses came back in full force some years ago, I decided to sew a new one last year using the same pattern, but this time I didn’t cut the skirt panels at the waist. For the grey dress, I used a cotton lace and sewn the lace on black cotton/silk panels.

    Both of the dresses are very beautiful and they look so different and both suit you very well. Pretty universal pattern. By the way, I remember it, I wanted to make the dress in white colour.

      You’re right – some styles are worth keeping ;-)
