Scotsmania - Tweed Christmas dress Burda style 02/2016

Added Dec 17, 2016

by Irina Schwab

Aylesbury, Unite...






This is the result of a Viview Westwood – Dolce Gabanna style in good quality tweed and Burda style (read pattern).

I simply love this pattern and I am planning to use it again. First time I used a floral stretch cotton. The fit was a bit too lose for my taste, so I went for a size down and a non-stretch fabric. Great fit, I must admit, it is really flattering despite the lack of material. I only had 1.5 meters – so I had to considerably reduce the length of flounce and sleeves.

Adorned with an applique and gold sequins.

Can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.

Material Notes

wool tweed – John Lewis
sequins by the meter
Applique – ebay




Winter, Fall
Garment Type
Classic, Steampunk, Romantic, Goth/Gothic Lolita

      Ha ha! Yes. Quite hard to match the pattern when you have half the fabric available!
