Burda Style 2/2007 Dress 123


This dress was on my list to make a long time. I made it to take with me to PR weekend, and I did but never wore it. The sash that comes with the pattern turned out too short, don't ask me why and since I don't have enough fabric to make another one I will wear it with a belt; I think it also looks ok sans belt.

Nothing exciting going on in the back


Be aware when making this pattern that the front is doubled, since it is a mock wrap, only the bodice is a wrap. You will need a pretty lightweight fabric and make sure the shoulder seams are stabilized with your preferred notion.

When I put on this outfit this morning I thought I was giving Sally from Already Pretty, the self-claimed matchy-matchy queen some competition. After all take a look at my jewelry also...

Necklace is a souvenir from the flea market I went to in NYC

I do like the sweetheart neckline in this pattern, but it is low...

  1. Lisette,me gusta mucho el vestido. La tela es muy bonita y la forma del pecho la encuentro muy favorecedora. Entiendo que la tuvieras en la lista de pendientes.
    Un beso,

  2. That's very pretty. Love that necklace also. I wonder if the print of that dress though, made your eyes crazy when working with it.
