Hi! This is a really old pattern its burdastyle magazine model 12-2004-107. I loved the dramatic neckline of this model when I saw it in the magazine in 2004 and I wanted to sew it. I traced size 34 but never made it. Last September I traced it again, in size 38 and now I finally made it. Im not quite satisfied of the result because the dress is a little shapeless but I do love the neckline!

I love how you used the leather for the yoke/neckline. I also like the shrug with the dress. It is a very pretty combination

That is a beautiful neckline indeed!
And I love how you used leather for it.
I don't think it's bad that the dress does not have much shape, since it emphasizes the neckline. And you could always wear it with a wide leather belt.
Great job, as always!

I like the touch of faux leather!  I am with you, though, that it would be nicer to have more shape to show off your womanly curves! Grin

But, you look lovely in it and have another dress to add to your growing collection!
