This was a dress I wanted to wear at Christmas. It was one of my first makes and even though it was pretty on the tailor’s dummy, it was really short lengthened on me…I ended up wearing it but feeling not very comfortable so it was a one-time-show. I cannot recall why I shortened it so much…
I decided to show you the dress anyway because the pattern is really beautiful and perfect for a formal dress. If you would sew it with a flowing soft fabric like viscose it would look beautiful, I’m sure:o)
The special thing about this dress is the side with the beautiful draped fabric. As you can maybe see the fabric is not really made for dresses, it was in fact some taffeta made for curtains. But in my early sewing days I often sewed with totally different fabrics as the advised ones. Not a very wise decision;o)
The pattern is Burda 12/2012, #112.
