I needed a dress for a gala evening in Vienna in which I will take part next week, and I always liked this Burda pattern. Friends told me that I would need a long dress, though, so I took only the bodice of the pattern and added a long skirt: mainly two gathered rectangles, tapered to the bottom, and with a vent in the back.
I also underlined the whole dress with silk organza and added some boning in the bodice (always wanted to try boning!).
