Prim & Proper Burda Dress Inspired by Heidi Merrick

Added Aug 15, 2011

Aachen, Germany






A very loose interpretation of the Burda 5-2008-125 sheath dress. I used the lining pattern to make the body of the dress (silk and wool blend flannel suiting in black with white pinstripes) and drafted the sleeves and scarf (cream colored silk and cotton voile) to attach to it la designer Heidi Merrick’s Kate dress. Check out this post on my blog for more pictures and details.

Material Notes

wool and silk flannel suiting in black with white pinstripes, silk and cotton voile in off white




Garment Type
Business, Classic
Cotton, Blends, Silk, Wool

    Welcome back. Another well styled outfit. The neck tie reminds me of Burda 10/2010-118.

    Whoooy, you’re back! And looking good (both you and the dress)! Funny, the very second before I clicked on “activity” on my profile and saw you had just added a new project, I actually thought of you, that I really wondered if something bad had happened to you, or what on earth, GLAD to see you’re ok!

    Welcome back!
