Vintage Dress 05/2012

Added May 21, 2012

by burda style ...

Munich, Germany






Want a vintage-feel dress, that is still in style today? This dress is a great vintage Burda pattern, brought out from the archives in Germany and re-made and re-styled. It was originally published in Burda Moden 5/1961.

This lovely dress features a draped back, shoulder ribbon ties, and is made in a luxurious velvet. You could even lengthen the hemline to the floor for a dress fit for a fancy gala. Or you could make it in a floral print for a more casual day-dress.

Length from waist 66 cm (26 ins)

    The Dress Is beautiful. i’m doing something similar like that but mine is more edgy because it has the drapes in the front and back and also I played with the darts in other to make it more futuristic and chic. You will see it soon in my page

    I love this dress! I did a double take when I saw it because I had just sketched almost the exact same dress in almost the exact same color a few days before it posted. What a coincidence!
