Black n grey dress

Dunedin, New Zea...






Slimfitting corporate style dress with pleats and collar.

Material Notes

Black merino for top, grey stretch cotton for bottom (bad choice, it was really expensive and creases so easily…)





Burda WOF 9/2007 dress 117

I had a few issues with sizing – the top was WAY to big, then the bottom was too tight… it took quite a bit of modifying.

    I’ve got Wof 9/2007 but have never really looked at this dress as one I want to make but your choice of fabric and colour makes me want to now :) and cicaktoes it right, this would be great for work! And thanks for the heaps up with sizing issues, it’s great to warn others if a pattern might be a funny fit so we can buy a bit more fabric and take a bit more care with fitting it. Well done, you have inspired me.

    hey! great style! i love the creased grey fabric! it gives your dress such a nice structure and let it seem so natural. i don’t think that it was a bad choice to use it =)
