This is model 120 from burda issue 07-2010. Burda instructions called for chiffon but I used jersey instead – this resulted in bulky seams because of the gathers but I like very much the dress. This pattern is just adorable and I think this dress is  my new favorite!!

It is probably more comfortable in jersey!  I think it is very flattering...I love the gathers...

That's another beautiful dress!
I too think it's better in jersey.
And your shoes and necklace match it very well.

When I started sewing, this issue of Burda was one of the first I bought and this model was one of the first I tried out. In chiffon. You can imagine it was a disaster Cheesy

Your jersey version looks great! Does it even need a zipper?

I never sewed chiffon before, the word itself makers it sound horrible to sew Wink

Your choice for jersey is a very good one!! I love it!!

Another stunning dress you've made!
You are so super talented Smiley

It's a gorgeous pattern that looks great in jersey.
Love the bodice pattern, it's very flattering.
Hopefully it's a pleasure to wear, too!

Thank you very much ladies, the dress is very comfy in jersey and it doesn't need zipper.
p.kok I've been sewing for 25 years and still I have neven worked with chiffon Cheesy
LA-Fairy the pattern isn't available on line Sad the only way is to buy the burda issue 07-2010

I adore both the model and the colour of that dress! Nicely paired with that necklace and those shoes as well Smiley
