Early 50s Burda Dress

A few month ago I found on ebay a german “Burda Moden” pattern sheet from the early 50s for only 1 Euro! The journal was not there but the instruction were printed on the pattern sheet. And this is the first dress!

    This is beautiful and it fits you so nicely! 2 questions – Are the sleeves made up with really wide straps attached to the bodice? And are the buttons actually functional?

      In the original pattern the dress is closed with the front buttons but my dress has a back zipper …
      yes the sleeves are attached with wide straps.
