based on the burdastyle magazine pattern 124 issue 08/09. some tiny alterations at the back. I love it, because it´s so incredible versatile. Styled up with a clutch and some jewellery for evenings or with a polo neck for university it´s wearable everywhere and everytime.

Material Notes

deep blue (old fashioned) satin. I bought it at the liquidation of a mom-and-pop grocery store. they sold every garment rest for 1euro. although, of course, it ´s a pitty the lovely shop had to close……

    I loved that dress the minute I saw it in the BWOF magazine. Thanks for posting these pictures, now I’m convinced I should give it a go. Your dress is spectacular! The fabric gives it orient look, but it is far more interesting due to specific pattern. Love your photos!

    Ah, it looks great on you, and I love the fabric! I hesitated a bit when I saw it in the magazine (pretty but I was scared it’d be a bit dull), but yours is fabulous, I might give it a go!

    Alles klar! ;) Ich bin wirklich begeistert von dem Modell! Auch die Fotos sind sehr schön! Werde sehen ob ich den ultimativen Stoff finde. Leider habe ich keine Grlöße 34, sondern 44 – aber ich werde es wagen.

      im notfall könntest du ja aus einem billigen stoff probieren, ob du dich drinnen wohlfühlst. und dann ev. erweiterungen machen. ich hab von früheren modellen die erfahrung, dass bei mir (weil ich relativ klein bin) oben 36 viel zu groß ist, aber bei den hüften genau richtig, v.a. wenn ich mich drinnen bewegen möchte :) alles liebe!

    I like it very much! Wonderful and beautiful! :) The satin, is it stretch fabric?? I want to sew this model but I am searching for some stretch fabric. Otherwise ist not comfortable to wear?

      my dress is not strechy. to keep it comfortable also when i drive the car or sit somewhere, i made the skirt part nearly size 36 instead of 34, as i made the upper part. i would say the pattern itself is not too tight so that you need a stech fabric necessarily. good luck with the project!!!
