I Dream of Paris

Added Aug 27, 2009

Greensboro, Nort...






This dress is one of my first projects from Burda magazine. The August 2009 issue included a Parisian Fashion section, which is what this pattern is from. The dress took me two and a half days to make, and though I was intimidated by the bow-style belt, it was actually quite easy to make as well.

Material Notes

Dress: Grey suiting material, invisible zipper. Belt: Black grosgrain ribbon, two snaps for closure




Garment Type


Pattern #128

    The dress is great, and so are you! The belt accents everything perfectly! :)
