Pink dress with bow

Added May 30, 2014

by liliv-1

Athens, Greece






Hi, this is model 107 from burda 11/2007. I had used many times the skirt of this pattern but this time was the first to use the bodice, which is interesting due to the unusual bust darts. I added an XXL drapped bow using the instructions found in the 10/2013 burda issue. I think the result is cute and I hope it is not very childish for my age:) I plan to wear the dress with the bow a couple of times and then remove it and replace it with a black necklace as shown at the pictures. What do you think?

    What a pretty dress. I love the bow, actually I like the dress better with the bow. It’s youthful, not childish :) and it looks fantastic on you.

    Very sweet look. In my opinion, this bow is much to sophisticated to make you look childish. I think it suits you…Just curious, how did you like the look and fit of the bust darts?

      Thank you Angie for the kind comment! I liked very much these darts, I think they are very flattering for small busts. Hugs and kisses!

    looks gorgeous…both styles, as an alternative maybe u should think about a little black scarf (or white dots on black) instead of bow or necklace for the neck with a very thin black plain belt. Just a suggestion :))))) Also colour is great :))))

    Wow! Great color. I like the bow for a fun look. The belt & beads are good for a chic feel. I think you look great in both. :-)

    Oh I love the color and especially love it with the black accessories. The bust darts are very unique – were they hard to sew? Another triumph for you my friend!

    You are just a candy girl in this dress:-)))) The bow makes the outfit unique and adds some vintage note so wear it as often as possible! And without it the dress gives many chanced to embelish it with other accessoires. Very beautiful indeed.

    awesome dress, and the bow is most definitely NOT childish! :D it’s a fun addition and in the end i think it all depends on how you style the whole look. (hairstyle, shoes, belt, etc.) :) without the bow the dress is chic and classy, with the bow the dress is fun and flirty. nothing wrong with any of those! :D

    It looks realy realy great! I think you are wrong in case of the bow! you Could say same thing about the color or patern of dress not suitable for age, but All have nothing to do with age! :-) you look great in it, the bow its a great touch for the dress, its great also that can be removed to accesorize the dress how you want!!!

    I love that pattern :) I also made that dress, but didn’t get around to upload it on BurdaStyle.. Your dress looks cute with the bow, in a good way :) maybe it’s more interesting like that.. and it’s always good to have an option to take it off if you’re in a mood for something else :)

    Such a fresh colour, and styled with black is definetely not childish! I personally prefer the necklace :-)

      Thank you very much, I think I prefer the necklace too, although I love the bow, because it makes the dress look more grown up :-)
