Let's go sailing... - dress 122 in navy / offwhite

Added Apr 9, 2012

Aux, Germany






I had the perfect setting for this dress in my mind (going sailing, some boats and a lake in the background) … unfortunately, the weather crossed my plans for taking pictures on a nice lake in Austria (Wrthersee) to that I went over the easter holidays.

So now back home, I decided to take some indoor pics of the dress.

It is my take on the famous 122 Burda cover dress of issue 9/2010. I chose a navy colored romanit jersey for the base and added 1 stripe in some kind of off white (is that the right name?). I was not sure if i should put the cream colored stripe or leave it completely navy but at the end I think it was the right decision for me.

PS: The last pic shows you why I didn’t want to take the pictures there ;-)

    Ist schon lsutig, dass wir auf einer nicht deutschen Internetseite uns mit Englisch anreden, bis eine von uns merkt, dass wir beide aus Deutschland kommen. Musste schmunzeln, als ich es sah! Funny!

      Hihi, ja stimmt….vielleicht kennst Du ja auch jemanden der die Ausgabe hat. Ich finde das Schnittmuster jedenfalls echt klasse.

    Well done! White detail definately the right choice. I’m not yet familiar with this pattern, but based on yours, I’ll be making it!

    Wow! I’m so impressed! I love it! At this point I should have bought the magazine! It’s always the same, I see the dresses in the magazine and think: No, that’s not what I am looking for. And then: I see what the users make of the patterns!

      Thank you so much! You should go hunting this pattern ;-). It is still available on the German Burda page, just klick pattern 122
      (hope the link works)
      I didn’t buy this issue since at that time I havent started sewing, so I copied it from a lady who is joining my sewing class. I highly recommend this pattern.
