Celestina unaltered ;)

Den Haag, Nether...






I loved the Celestina dress since it came on the site, especially the darts-to-insert construction and the fact it has long sleeves on a thin dress. This is my second creation from a Burdastyle pattern and I was really pleasently suprised with the fit. I cut the fabric according to the sizing table and didn’t have to make any changes while sewing. I added facings to the waist-inserts to neaten the inside.

Material Notes

cotton with floral embroidery

    That’s amazing. I have to admit I was skeptical of the Celestina when I saw the sample on here, because it’s really hard to find patterns for long-sleeved dresses that don’t either look frumpy or too kiddish, and I kind of wrote this one off as the latter. But yours looks so chic, it’s making me seriously rethink my opinion of this pattern!

    Beautiful! I really love the Celestina dress and now I love it even more. :-) And yes, it has your “signature”, your style!

    wonderful again, lauriana! i have to agree with Jj— the word to describe all of your creations is “elegant.” just lovely.

    Oh my goodness, It is so chic. I love all of your creations. They are all elegant. I can’t believer that this dress is actually the Celestina dress. I kept going back and forth, checking the pattern and your dress. I want one! I have a piece of linen with floral embroidery as well but it is not as nice as yours.
