This is from the fabulous 12/2008 Burda mag which has some great patterns on board. This is a fitted cocktail dress, with gathered detail over the bust and slimline shoulders. The back closure is zip to the diaphragm and then a crossover finish for the back of the bodice. The dress is fully lined and was fairly easy to make. The bust is a little tight, but since the gathered detail is sewn on, it does not affect by pulling it out of shape.
All in all, this is a great pattern with loads of potential and it would make a flattering evening dress.
