I made this quick and easy project (Dress 125) using the latest issue (2-2010) of Burda. It's from the 50s Rock Inspiration section. I really love the darts, shaping, and plunging back. There will be some more of these in my future, I'm sure. The only thing I needed to make this was the thread and stretch cotton fabric. The stretch was enough to omit the zipper from the directions.

The dress looks hot! Where did you find that fabric? It's great (and I love how it allowed you to eliminate the zipper!!)

I bought the fabric at Yardage Town on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. in San Diego. I think it cost me $7.00 or so. Not bad for a party dress.

You look so beautiful!! Very well done! (I have to check this Burda issue again,  I haven't found something interesting at the first look...)
