Dress with knot

Added Dec 9, 2013

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






This dress is made of batic jersey and it looks a bit like denim. It’s based on pattern #103 Burda 02/2008. At first I thought the neck was a bit wide, but now I like it. I had a little trouble with the knot in front, but I managed it at last and I’m very Happy with this dress :)

Material Notes

Vicose jersey.




Fall, Winter
Garment Type

    Ooo I love this one. I can’t quite tell from the photos – does the collar hang towards the middle (like a cowl neck would) or does it stand around your neck in a boat neckline shape?

      That’s so nice to hear :) If you take a look at my last picture, then you can see the neck, so I will say that it is more like a boat neckline shape :)

    Looks great and the knot at the front doesn’t look too bulky which I like.

      Thanks – It is indeed a flat bulk, so I think you should give it a try :)

    This dress is really nice Ellen and you look great in it. (I think I write that every time but you do always look great in whatever you make). I don’t remember this dress looking that good in the magazine so I will have to get it out and study it.

    This LBD is fabulous ellen. I have had this on my to do list for a long time. I have the pattern traced out and ready to go. I loved the plain version of it in green in the mag and your version is fabulous on you. It was the neck and the front knot that sold me on this dress. gorgeous ellen x
