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.
