This fabric was a love at the first sight!! I bought it from an apparel fabric store but it looks like hom dec, it has a wonderful black, white and brown print and a lovely texture. I used dress pattern 101 from burda 02/2011( with the skirt of model 107 from burda 11/2007). I don t regret for my pattern decision, I love my new dress very very much!!!

Quite lovely. I like the fabric, too! And you look nice modeling it. I can tell that you were having fun that day!
I have not had good luck with the Burda patterns. I am a good seamstress, but they just do not seem (seam  Grin) to fit me well. Normally I am an off the rack type of girl in an 8-10. Tall, so I always have to modify there.

You did a wonderful job. I like how it looks on you. Great color pattern you chose for your complextion and hair color. It "suits you well.

I want to come see you in your beautiful country and sew dresses with you!!!

This is such a lovely dress...so classic and yet young and fresh!

Is there a zipper somewhere or does the fabric stretch? ha ha How do you get in it is my question...

I love that you combined your patterns...

You always make such pretty dresses, and they all suit you so well.  Great talent you have for this.

Very nice!  It's a little retro, and I like that.
