Hi, this is model 107 from burda 11/2007. I had used many times the skirt of this pattern but this time was the first to use the bodice, which is interesting due to the unusual bust darts. I added an XXL drapped bow using the instructions found in the 10/2013 burda issue. I think the result is cute and I hope it is not very childish for my age:) I plan to wear the dress with the bow a couple of times and then remove it and replace it with a black necklace as shown at the pictures. What do you think?

I don't think bows and ruffles are childish on a woman if it is done tastefully...this dress is versatile and fun...I like the playfulness of the bow and the sophistication of it plain with the black necklace.

I like the interest of the dart in the center of the bodice...I have not seen that in some time.

Another beautiful dress!

You made another beautiful dress!
To be honest, I don't like the bow. But that is just my personal taste.
I like it better with the plain neckline and the black necklace.
Great job!

Lovely dress, really suits you.  The bow is a fun addition & I like the black necklace version too.

Ps) Such pretty scenery in the background!
