    elegant-impressions, would it be possibly for you to write instructions and I could translate them on google translate? If not I understand. I’m just considering making this for a wedding and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to figure it out. :)

    AMAZING dress by the way. :) Y’all are great. :)

      Hi DixieQueen!
      Sorry about the missing instructions but we are both women who are working in full time jobs. We are glad if you understand that we don’t feel like writing instructions?!
      Saw your etsy side – I am convinced you could figure it out, how to sew the dress! Try it, it is a simple basic dress pattern with this special collar and with cuffs.
      There are some instructions to the elsa-pattern which is based on the same basic pattern – you could have a look!

      Thanks for the compliments!

      Irmchen and apfelbluete

    The dress looks fabulous. Have downloaded the pattern but the instructions aren’t with the pattern or on the instructions file. I’d love to make the dress so hope someone can point me to the instructions.

      Hi spinebill,
      we are glad you like the dress!
      Sorry! We added no instructions because we are not native english speaker.
      Here at BurdaStyle are a lot of related how-to’s which might be helpful?!

      Thanks Febe! Nice of you to ask. Our next project ‘Elsa#1’ will be the size 42. If the demand of ‘Nadia#1’ is growing… may be we will make it in other sizes but I am sorry to say it will take time, because it is so much work and we are only hobby seamstress’.

      Just starting with ‘Elegant Impressions’ we will offer only our own sizes, which are size 36 and size 42.
      May be you are able to reduce or enlarge the pattern?

    Ich finde hier die Abnäher so schön und die Ärmelaufschläge! Ich habe mir gleich diesen Schnitt runter geladen, damit ich ihn nicht verliere!!! Dieses Kleid erinnert einen wirklich an Vintage-Mode!
