I'm thinking I'd make this in a lighter fabric and do it without sleeves.  I'm a bit smaller than the pattern size, but hey.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

I based my Halloween costume on this!  I was Nurse Chapel from the original Star Trek and it was awesome.  I just tweeked the neckline.

My tips: DO NOT BE LAZY WITH THIS PATTERN!  measure everything and alter to make sure it fits you.  Remember the seam allowances are not included in the print out.  Try to get a fabric with at least a little bit of stretch.

Mine ended up looking cool, but I had to sew myself into it and the sleeves were a little too wide.  I also couldn't raise my arms above my head.  

It did turn out looking fantastic and being very flattering.  I got many a compliment!

Oh Oh Oh! I' ve been wanting to do that dress for months, but I cant decide what fabric would look best?
I love the grey but I dont know if it suits me (I'm blond and rather pale).
But I will find a fabric and I will join! Smiley Smiley Grin Grin

A size 36 continental is a size 8 US. A size 10 UK. A size 12 Australian.

And the pattern is free when you have registered.

I am definitely in! I have the most wonderful sari fabric that would just be waaay to comfortable not to make it ^^ When are you thinking you would do the sowalong?

love, pseudo

I'm sorry, did I get the size wrong? I assumed that it was 36 in Burda size, I wasn't aware that people uploaded patterns onto BurdaStyle with different types of sizing. So, I'm sorry if I've misinformed everyone.

Thank you, ravenwitch, for the link about resizing and thank you Belladune for taking time to write all that out, it's very helpful! Cheesy I didn't actually expect anyone to answer my question, either. Grin Thanks again!

According to the burda magazine I have on my knees at the moment (really need a bigger computer desk!) their size 38 is Uk size 12 and US size 8 which is bust 88 waist 70 and hips 94 thats in cm equal to 34.5, 27.5 and 37 inches respectively.


hope that helps.

I actually have the perfect fabric in my stash for this dress. I've been meaning to make one, but haven't found the motivation. Maybe this thread will motivate me!

I am smaller than the pattern size, and unless I'm drafting my own pattern, totally inept at altering someone else's pattern. So, this should be an ... interesting learning experience for me.
