Description

This is dress 121 from BWOF january 2008.
it includes welt pockets and a shawl collar and actually closes with the zipper. I replaced the suggested tie string on the inside by a snap-on fastener, and also added one above the zipper to avoid gaping at the bust.
I omitted the belt and belt loop since I prefer to accessorize it with my own belt.
It has short sleeves so I wear it with long-sleeve top underneath. I really love this dress, it feels like a comfy sweater…

Material Notes

I used a stretchy poly blend striped fabric. Not sure of the exact content.

    This is exquisite! Do you know where I might be able to find this pattern? I can’t seem to find it anywhere and you’ve inspired me to make it!

      THanks for your comment ! This is an older issue of Burda World of Fashion. You might be able to find back issues of the magasine online, but I’m not too sure where…

    Thanks for all the compliments !! @FNM: I didn’t make the belt, it’s store bought, but it would be quite easy to replicate.

    This is really stunning. I love how you’ve styled it with the belt. And your photographs are beautiful. I thought at first it was one of the Burdastyle magazine posts with a professional model! You look great!

      Hi Carolyn. thanks for the compliment !
      my bf is actually a professional photographer, so that definitely helps show the clothes (and the “model” ) in a good light :)
