This time the dress is not simple and quick but very beautiful and worthy all the work and the spent time:-) As I bought the issue because of it, I couldn’t but sew it. The dress has good fitting, wonderful silhouette and feminine details. Besides, I am happy with the fabric I matched.
It is not the pattern for the beginners but you never regret if to make it. Great addition to the wardrobe.
I made some modification for the front part: changed the neck hole line and omitted detail 2 for the lining.
My tips for the sewing are here .
The jewellery was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Woolen jersey for the dress and rayon for the lining.

    I really can’ t take my eyes of you in these pictures! My first reaction to this was a big wow and I’ m not even a fan of lavender. Or I wasn’ t until now. I enjoyed your story about the dress! I don’ t know how much you spent on this project but it was totally worth the money and the effort as the finished dress looks like a million bucks! The jewellery is equally if not even more impressive! Never stop inspiring us Oksana! You have at least one huuuge fan in the community!

      Thank you, Liliv:-) I guess such wonderful comments and at least one so huuuge fan are very inspiring for me as well, I am so happy to have all this in my life. In reality don’t have sewing friends so the people brought to my life by Burdastyle are just blessing for my crafts and my constant wish to go on:-) Thank you very much again!!!

    Oksana, this is an amazing dress, but I am not surprised by your skill in execting this classic piece. The colour is wonderful on you and I so love the pleat detail on the skirt.

    Such a wonderful dress!!! I very much liked it when I first saw it in the magazine, but didn’t pay too much attention to it. You look gorgeous in this, great shape, fit and colour and I especially like the back of it. Wonderful job!

    Beautiful dress! I love the colour and such a funny story, making the necklace before even buying the fabric. I guess this lavender dress was meant to be!

    It’s gorgeous oksana and like you I wanted to make this dress as soon as I saw the line drawings for the back. It looks fantastic on you and the bottom section does work so well. Love the colour on you and your jewellery goes so well. A classic piece of sewing x
