dress - burda 09/2012, #107

made this dress back in november
but it took me ages to take pics
(even those crappy phone ones)
..
had only 1.1m of fabric
and somehow squeezed dress out of that..
i managed to make front symmetric
back is a mess
but i can live with that
..
dunno what the fabric is supposed to be used for
wouldn't be surprised if it's upholstery 
it's quite stiff..
but i loved the print
(and it hides seams pretty well..
so you don't get to see my freestyle back double pointed darts
that are everything but symmetric)
..

    1. thanks, lisa.. i still have to learn how to wear dresses so short, they require some lady manners, and i'm more like a lumberjack than a lady :) so leggings are mandatory

  4. hey man, when you have limited precious, the back is secondary! i love those swirls up the front, you're like a walking escher...

  5. I looove the black and white graphic print of the fabric and the silhouette is perfect for it. I like what you call “messiness” at the back - It’s like the front is so controlled with the perfect pattern placement the back needed to be more “rebellious” ;)

    1. i actually chose this dress pattern, as it shows off the fabric really well (at front that is, because there is no vertical seams to mess with it).. love how you call the back 'rebellious' hehe

  6. This print is wonderful! I can't stop staring at it :) I love it when I manage to squeeze something great out of little fabric, and you sure did it!

  8. Agree with Sasha, can't really notice the messiness, the fabric is so psychedelic that covers any print misplacement. Would love to see this dress in B&W photos!!

  13. Whoa! This looks great! The fit is perfect! I've never managed to really fit a shift or sheath dress... I need to give it another go. I want a dress exactly like this! You look awesome!

    1. thanks, sonja! i think this pattern is a great starting point for good shift or sheath dress.. front works just find, back has no shaping, but you can do what i did - add two double pointed darts to get it fit you the way it should (advice - find an assistent, or you'll have to do some silly yoga moves to pin those darts yourself)

  14. Great dress! The print is amazing, and almost looks alive and moving.

  15. This fabric is amazing! Good job squeezing a dress out of a tiny amount!

  16. Great fabric! I´m into geometrics at the moment... I can´t recognise the pattern, must check it out.
    Looking as chic as usual!
