This from burda issue 5-2011. I used a cotton blend with a bit of stretch.  I didn't want to interrupt the large print so I skipped the back seam.  I also skpped the zipper because of the elasticity of the fabric. The whole dress took me about 2-3 hours of sewing and 1m of fabric Smiley I plan to wear it a lot this summer.

I think liliv might start a dress revolution!  So many feminine and beautiful dresses...the placement of the large flowers are prefect...creating movement in the dress...your attention to such details as not disrupting the pattern with seams, zippers, etc. is a testament to your wonderful skills as a seamstress...
