I love all dresses in Burda magazine – 12/2013, and I think I will try all part terns. Or almost all of them.
My second favourite after the Princess dress has to be tho sone. I have departed from my resolution to wear tight fitted dresses, however the trend is now towards sculptural, straight lined dresses with a modern vibe.
The pattern reminds me a lot of the trend that Victoria Beckham started.
The dress is made following the pattern 129 in Burda 12/2013. It is lined in ivory silk satin and features side pockets and vintage pearlised blue beads.
The main feature of the dress is, however, the overstitching alongside the pitched lines. Symmetry and accuracy is a must!
