Pattern is from 10/2012 Burda Style magazine and I loved it at first sight.

    Beautifully done. The fabric you chose really shows the bias draped front to full effect. But one question – did you line it? Would you advise me to line it when I make my version?

      Thank you! No, the dress is not lined but you can add lining if you are skilled enough. If not, I would recommend you to wear half or full slip beneath the dress.
