This is X Wrap Dress from burda 04/2014, it's a very interesting and unique pattern and I like the dress very much. What do you think

This is lovely!  I really like the dress, the pattern is very unusual.  Was it difficult to make?

Great colour too!

I like this dress as well! and love your color choice.
I too was wondering if its difficult to make.

Thank you ver much for your comments girls Smiley The fabric is woven. The construction was not very difficult but it took me some time to understand how the wrap is created.

I didn't like it at all when I saw it in the magazine but it looks really nice on you so I need to re-think I guess. Smiley

That happens to me a lot! I can't seem to see if the pattern will look good on me or with different fabric, haha! Lots to learn I guess!  Wink

Nice dress, Liliv! It looks great on you and I love the colour. Do you know that the Dutch wear orange whenever we have a Dutch national celebration like Kings Day or when the Dutch socker team plays The European or World Champion Cup (or whatever, I don't like socker!)? So you can come and join us on 27th April on Kings Day and wear that pretty dress!  Cheesy

Thank you very much for your comments ladies Smiley Wendiek I wish I were Dutch on 27th April to have an excuse to wear it, because here in Greece I haven't worn it yet Cheesy

I hate orange. But the dress looks lovely, and looks to be a great pattern, and looks very nice on you  Grin
Make one in purple  Cheesy Burda has never been easy patterns for me to fit into. I have to trace them into my slopers.
I am a walking stick bug/twig. But perhaps this style could modify easier. I think you did a great job with things. You are quite pretty wearing it. And I love the backdrop of flowers, and the addition of the one in your hair. Tropical.


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.
