3D Print Fancy Pocket Dress

Added Dec 21, 2016

I bought this black and white 3D print and thought it would be suitable to make the fancy pocket dress. I love the fancy pocket dress from the October issue and I believe I made the right fabric choice.

Over the weekend, starting from the Sabbath I had convocation at church and what better way to celebrate it, than with a sophisticated wing pockets and soft pleats. The skirt provides an exciting contrast to the plain fitted bodice which creates a fine figure.

From a distance, the pockets of this dress look like a peplum and have a similar effect making it a wonderfully curvy, seductive silhouette! The bodice, with front and back V-neckline, remains quietly unadorned. However, I made a small modification to the sleeve. The sleeve band was lengthen and widened. I place a pleat in the center from of the sleeve. The modification to the sleeve give it a more balanced effect.

I loved how the dress turned out and it suits my silhouette very much.

What do you think?

    Fabulous version, very dramatic shape due to your fabric choise! I have seen many jersey drapey versions of this and they convinced me to try the pattern with red jersey and I love it. I think it’s one of the best burda patterns this year and I plan to make it several times! One of them will be with a great volume like yours, thanks for posting this!

    Indeed, Daina, it looks perfect on you. That monochrome palm print is just fab, especially the way it’s been panelled. It looks like a black and white photo that’s been cut up and rearranged – very arty! :)
