Description

This dress is inspired by the idea of a dress 128 from Burda 10/2010, however the pattern is not the best and also for a tall person, and I am more of a shortie and with my size 17 it would have been to many alteration needed. So I took the idea and used previously tested and adjusted pattern (Burda 1/2007 dress 105) and sleeves from another top. Altogether it took me one evening to make it, although the fabric is a nightmare to press- it is a suede look jersey with wet look jersey. The girls on Russian Burda Photo Forum called this dress Matrix- hence the name)))

    Looks great! Seems we agree on our Burda Mag-choises :-D This is on my to-do-list too :-D If only I had the time!

    Thanks for the link. I’m going to moderate the pattern too.

    You look great in it!! Good job! I saw it in the October issue and loved it but I had the same concern as you did. I’m size 17 and the pattern is too long!! However, I’m going to alter the pattern and make it. Hopefully, mine will turn out as nice as yours :)
