Description

I found this pattern in the newest Burda easy fashion and had to give it a try. I had some mint jersey left after my top and thought it would be nice together with black jersey. I’ve used the zipper just as decoration, and also the little insert of mint. For the back part I thought it was nice with black bias to make it more interesting :)

    Can you please let me know which issue this was in? I have searched for it but must have over looked it. Thanks so much!

    I don’t know how everybody could find the words to express their admiration… as for me, I have none… :-))) It is a real WOW-look. The effect you’ve got with the combination of the fabrics and contrast of the colours is really stunning. And the back… is … is… so sexy and refined at same time. It is an Ideal Dress for you.

    I love your dress (as well as everything else you make)! I always look for your projects, however this is the first time that I have actually commented. :-) Thanks for being an inspiration to give some of these patterns a second look. I may actually try this dress after seeing your version.
