      Thank you so much, libbysharf! :).

      As to the pattern combining, I traced and cut the top pieces from Burda 3/2011, #108 and the bottom pieces from Burda 3/2010, #107. They matched perfectly.

    (I’ve said this many times but…) I always love this style of high neckline and low back! Gorgeous dress and good combo!

      Hi again, I’m actually making this pattern now for bridesmaid dresses. I just made a muslin and it is much much too small! Wondering what size you used and how you converted it? As the pattern says size 17-21 which doesn’t make sense to me.

      Thank you :)

    This is such a lovely creation – and the colour suits you well. I’m rather envious!
