Burda Style 5/2010 Knit dress 105



This dress has been reviewed many times, it is a very easy to make pattern and very easy to wear. Since my fabric, a rayon knit is lightweight I added a lining to the skirt.

As you can see this is a very large print and I tried to space out the flower centers as well as I could, considering that I had very little fabric to play around with (note to self, when buying large prints always get a little more!)


I wanted to show you this dress when I had some time to take pictures, so this was a quick session (no accessories and flip flops =0 !) I will not be sewing for me in the next couple of weeks since I'm rather involved making costumes for my oldest son theater production of Peter Pan. He is playing one of the Lost Boys and he is super excited to be on stage for the first time since his involvement before had been as part of the tech crew. So far it has been lots of fun! I will share what I end up making with you.

  2. Lovely, Lisette! The colors are gorgeous on you--and great job working with short yardage and a big print (yes, I've had that same talk with myself re: enough yardage for large prints!),

  6. Oh Lisette, my favourite item from your wardrobe! I've put this pattern on my Frocktober list, but as it is last on my list it is likely to drop off.

  8. I like your dress- it looks fantastic on you! I have been going back and forth on making this one. I have a large rayon print that I think would work well, but I'm just not sure the pattern will work for me. The weather is changing, though, so I guess I'll wait until spring to decide!

  11. Lisette, I missed that post. How could I. Your version of this dress look 100 times more elegant and lovely than in the Magazine. I have to reevaluate this pattern. I want one now !
