Burda 7569. Classic style for all occasions. Simple enough to dress up with accessories, made in a colour usually associated with the festive season but could easily fit in with any occasion throughout the year. Drapes well in a satin effect fabric. Comfortable to wear and the cumberbund gives a flattering fit.

Material Notes

3 metres of a heavyweight satin effect – otherwise unknown.

      Second time lucky! I had to undo the skirt to get a better fit! Thanks.

    Lovely…I always have trouble making satin look smooth, and professional…you did a great job.

      I haven’t used satin before – so I just went right in there and luckily it came out ok. It’s not exactly a completely satin fabric, but it’s very slippery. Thanks for the compliment!

      Thanks! The fabric sewed up really well, even though I had to undo the skirt to make a better fit at one stage.
