I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it. I generally like wide waistbands it is from the 11 2007 issue of Burda. It is sized for women 176 cm and over. I am about 174 cm so I decided to make it with no adjustments (although I did shorten the length). I usually make a 40 so I made up a size 80 in this. The waist length is good but there is a slight gaping issue at the neckline. This will be resolved by making a fold on the neckline pattern piece.

I would like to make it in evening fabric-so this dress is my test run. The small busy fabric does not show off very well the waistband or pleating of the bodice-but I still like the shape of the dress very much.
