This was my first time playing with a Burda pattern.

I like the pattern, especially the accessories options. I felt the instructions took a little getting used to, but I don't tend to actually follow them any more anyway. This fabric I found at Jo-Ann Fabrics and absolutely loved. The hand was so soft, it was a heavier brushed poly-cotton blend. Just lovely. Funny thing was, I saw this fabric in a different Jo-Ann fabrics later and as I usually do, I went to touch it and was completely disgusted by the nasty feel. Looks like I got some of the good batch.

lol - I do the same thing with directions on a pattern.  It turned out great!

And I see it has a short sleeve option - I may have to go find it for myself for summer.  Smiley

You did a SMASHING job on this gorgeous dress!

I really thought the fabric was vintage...Perfect choice.   Smiley

It has a vintage touch but the fabric makes it more wearable and modern!  It fits you well and looks terrific!
