Enschede, Nether...






The pattern is from Burda Magazine September 2010. As you can see the pattern is the same I used for my red suede skirt, wich I uploaded weeks ago.
The pattern is a delight to work with! I was surprise how easy and fast it could be finished. I could accomplished this project in a couple of hours.
The fit is just perfect, but I think pictures doesnt make any justice, is much better in person.
I though I have to lock this dress till spring but today was a warm and sunny day so I decided to wear it for the first time, cause it has been finished for 10 days and I was dying for trying it on. I wore it with silver-pewter accesoires. The temperature was unexpected high so I have to change my boots for a pair of heels. Then I realized this dress is so versatile and can be worn as you prefer.
Even though I am not into pastels, I wanted to make it in the same original color as shown in Burda, but for sure I will make it again using a vibrant color. It is soooo comfortable

    This pattern is simply amazing and so is your version of it. The color seems to be a bit lighter than the original one, but it looks immaculate nonetheless. Very nicely done. And it suits you so well. My compliments

    Your dress is gorgeous! I am making this right now and am stumped by the instructions on how to attach the “sleeves.” Did they make sense to you? Any pointers? Thanks!

      Dear Audrey, I always figured out any instruction cause the magazines are in Dutch I m not fluent. I attached the sleeves as I imagined they had to be done. Sew only one layer direct onto the top of the armhole exact on the sew line and follow the line till the end marks on the front and back piece. then fold the sleeves and attach the edges making invisible stitches by hand on the seams. Hope it would help

      I used stretchy rayon. Magazine recommended a kind of woll tricot, but if has to be stretchy fabric cause it doesnt have zipper, it´s a pull over model
