I fell in love with this pattern (#128) the first time I saw it in the Burda magazine 08/2009, but i needed the right occasion to sew an wear it. Finally sewed it for a wedding in spring.
I used a beautiful cashmere/wool fabric with a little grey and black pattern.
Had absolutely no issues sewing the pattern.
I found a pink cotton fabric for the belt and a really big fabric flower.
It happened that the colourway of my dress and accessories matched perfectly not only the flower arrangements but also the suit of my brother-in-law :-) (see picture)
170 cm cashmere/wool fabric, 50 cm lining, zipper, fabric for the belt + press button
