Orange halter dress

Added Jul 14, 2013

Athens, Greece






This is my second take on burda model 116-07-2009 (the first version is here ). I used a not so thin jersey for it. For this reason I didn’t add the gathered pieces at the bust part. I just used the lining pattern pieces for the upper part, good for me because the construction was more easy this way:)
The pattern that I used is similar to the new 5-2013-123 downloadable "here”:http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/printed-maxi-dress-052013/

Material Notes

jersey fabric, pattern: burdastyle magazine 7/2009 maxi dress 116

    Beautiful dress! I like the changes you’ve made to pattern. I did not think about this pattern because of too deep neckline, but now when I saw your dress must reconsider this pattern. Love the color!

      Thank you very much, I’m very glad you like it!! The model 5-2013-123 has a deep neckline, I hope it was clear to you that I didn’t use this, but an older model!

    I love this orange dress. Also, you have that halter top down perfectly! It fits just right.

    I have to admit that orange is not a colour I have considered wearing but you may have just changed my mind about that! I love this dress and the colour looks amazing on you. Is there anything you can’t wear!?

      Thank you very much! Orange is a very pretty color, I didn’t like it at all in the past but now I love it. It’s yummy and cheerful and I think it suits many skintones, haircolors etc. There are so many things that I can’t wear:))

      Thank you very much for the nice comments:) You can make something orange, I think that this color would be perfect on you! This is what I love about sewing, you can make everything you wish, no need to go to the shops and search for an orange dress. Of course you have to search for an orange fabric instead:) But this is much more easy, at least for me!

    Orange was a dificult colour to me. I was coupling it with a man who works as a dustman and wears orange dungarees. Until I’ve sewn my first orange dress, for a try :D Since I did it, I loved this colour :D You look beautiful!

      I have the same issue with some colors, I have coupled them with something or somebody:))) I used to hate orange as well but the last years I love it…I don’t know what happened!

      I’m very glad you like my photos because I have a hard time everytime I take them!! But it is better to take the photos alone if the other person (i.e your mum) gets bored of it!

      Well, the pattern arrived today, McCall’s 5844, but now that I look at it it’s not the same. What was I thinking?
      ;P I think I like it though, and will give it a try…but maybe without the drape-y piece on the front. Hey – my August Burda-Style should be arriving any day now don’t you think??? I see they just posted the Bandeau dress onto the web site. I have one cut out – all but the top band, and I just can’t find anything that pleases me for it as yet.

      I just googled to find how McCall’s 5844 looks, it’s very pretty, it will be perfect for you!! I like the drape piece at the front, I wouldn’t skip it:) I’m sure the bandeau dress will be pretty. I love the August Burdastyle, especially this red suit and the leather jacket!

      You are amazing! Thanks for the link to the preview! Looks like we’ll be thinking about our fall wardrobes soon. There are some very pretty things in this issue, but we’re in the middle of a a heat wave (over 90 degrees for days and days!) so I still have a few more summer dresses to make for now. :)

    I like the color very much and the shape suits you so well. I like this better than maxi….so many different people, so many different opinions:-)

      Thank you very much frederi!! I like this better than maxi too, because I’ll wear it a lot this way! I love maxi dresses very much, but they remain unworn in my closet, I don’t feel so comfortable in them!

    It is very nice:) I’m sure everybody’s smiling looking at you:) A real magnit for attention; you are so sexy in it:) The pendant is an ideal accessoire for this decolette. And I like the pictures, especially those with the trees and sea on the background:)

      Oh, thanks, how sweet and kind comments!! The pendant is a way to fill a not so large bust;) I’m very glad you like the pictures with me climbing the trees:))) Which one looks like there is sea at the backround? There is no sea here, I’m not at the island anymore! :)))

      The picture under the bike and another one where you are leaning ahead (and your bust is well-seen, by the way:)) – there is a fence and blue mountains on the background and it seemed to me there’s a sea stripe between them, if it’s impossible, it means either I’m a dreamer or it creates an illusion of water…

      Jul 14, 2013, 04.49 PMby liliv-1

      A, ok you are right!! It looks like sea, but they are the houses in the front of the mountains!
