- when first saw dress in sept 2006 edition – wow!
- when became to know in sept 2017 there is a challenge about this dress – do it

searching around for my old burda – gone
- OK made my first PDF pattern purchase (take the gloves too)
… and too busy to make it .. time passes closure coming closer and closer – nothing started … suddenly I there was some time and GO!

I NEVER wear dresses – thought better to have a ‘deux pieces’ and completed the dresses waistline cut using my scissors – “snip” front center piece cut into two … seems I missed to read some lines of the challenge rules …. ;)

Just finished all and quick some picktures taken

Havin’ now a beautiful peplum top (fully lined) and skirt which allow various combinations with the rest of my wardrobe. I am very happy with my new “dress”

Perfect !

P.S. gloves made from skirts leftovers – for the purists 50s look

Material Notes

top – heavy polyester crepe (no strech)
skirt – suedine (very strechy)
