Women’s vintage dress sewing pattern available for download. Available in various sizes.

Originally published at the end of 1960, this Burda dress pattern was inspired by the French look.

You’ll always cut a fine figure in this bouclé dress. The coutoure style is a homage to the noble lady in every woman. The bodice looks like a short jacket with curved edges and large button. The narrow skirt ends elegantly at the knee. Voilå!

    I love this!!! I think it works better with a solid fabric (like in the vintage picture) so you can see the sewn detail more. :)

    I’m sold. Now that I’m turning 30 very soon the timing feels right for a wardrobe rehab with numbers like this stunner :)
