Burda 02/2011 Dress

Added Aug 8, 2011

Waterford, Ireland






This was made using this burda pattern.

I made a toile for the top half of this dress – and then raised the neckline by about 3cm and also took a little from the neckline edge as it was gaping slightly.
It came together over a single evening, a really great dress to make. The only change I would make is to include pockets in the next one I make.

      Thanks:) I was about to head out for the evening, but it being a typical Irish summer, I needed tights!

    I really like your version of this Burda pattern-it is very classy and stylish. If I ever get hold of a Feb 11 Burda mag I’m definitely going to make it!

      Thanks-I’ve worn it alot already.I’d definitely recommend making it. If you don’t get the mag, the pattern can be downloaded on it’s own from this site.

    Great job! I love the cap (?) sleeves and you styled it nicely with the belt.

      Thanks-the sleeves are cut in one piece with the bodice-so much easier than setting in sleeves separately.
