Does this Jason Wu design look familiar?

Picture from

I instantly noticed that the neckline in Mrs Obama's dress is just like the one in Burda 7517 which I made this summer.

The Jason Wu design seems to be cut at the waist with darts shaping the skirt as opposed to the shift style of the Burda that continues with the pleats that start at the neckline.

Pretty neat, no?


  1. You are a style leader!

  2. I love posts like this! It makes you feel on top of the fashion heap!

  3. It is so cool that you sewed a dress that looks so much like hers. Her dress has a more scooped neckline, but the pleat detail looks exactly the same. I hadn't noticed that Burda pattern before. It is really interesting.


I love hearing from you!
