I made this last summer and it is my favorite dress I have ever made. I used the dress pattern 125 from november burda 2007, this pattern is just perfect: it has adorable little sleeves with gussets, and a very flattering neckline with pleats at the arms, so feminine and retro!! The pattern called for a petticoat but I didnt add it because I wanted to reduce the vintage look. I used a stretch satin with a snake texture (it isnt visible at the photos but it is very pretty).

I agree with Beag!  It is very flattering and looks comfortable...what an unusual fabric as well.

Love seeing your dresses!

That's gorgeous and so well fitted! It must be very versatile, too.

BeaG, alwaysinmyroom and Midnight Sun thanks a lot from the amazing seamstress:-*.  Thanks very very much Clare-Dragonfly!  It would be very versatile if it wasn't satin: it is too shiny (much more than it looks at the pictures) and it can't be dressed down:(
