Well Erica, your creation is the one that put me over the top. I'm doing it. I'm subscribing, tracing and all. This is gorgeous on you by the way...

Congratulations Erica !!! Beautiful dress. I see a few Dior lookalikes in the last few issues of BWOF too.

Once again you've done a fabulous job!! The dress looks wonderful on you and I love the pleating details. I sure wish I had this issue of BWOF!

Really no FBA? And this looks very good on you, the only thing stopping me so far was the build of the ones who've done it before. Can't believe you've let tracing stop you from BWOF though, it's so easy... And do you have a rotary cutter with an adjustable guide arm, so you don't need to add a seam allowance? Burda are such idiots not to publicize this..

Beautiful dress. I love the color and I really do like it collarless, I think the pleat detail shows more.

Great dress, Erica! I love how it looks on you, I love that you gave up that collar and I also love that purple/fuchsia colour!

Add me to one of those who you convinced to try the Burda Mag. This dress is gorgeous and the color is to die for. Waiting for an occasion? Every day we live is an occasion!

I think that will turn heads for sure. You've made it so well.

That color just makes this dress POP. You look amazing. Welcome to the world of BWOF!!

I love the collar alteration! Gorgeous dress - I like it better than the inspiration!

Love this!! You look great in it and the color is fab. I can't wait to get my subscription. I hope it comes soon!

Ha, once you get hooked on Burda, there's no going back! If I ever feel down in the sewing dumps I just get some out and get inspired. This dress looks fab, the colour is great on you.

This dress is very flattering on you and the colour is great.

I knew you'd love BWOF! This looks great on you and I am so glad a curvier girl finally reviewed this dress. I like it without the collar too. I think it's probably more becoming to bustier women. Looks fab on you.

Christina Sonja said...
So I think it's safe to say that you hit a home run with your first BWOF project. Fabulous...!

Wow, that is fabulous! I have this issue. I may just have to pull it out and trace off that pattern.

This is becoming a popular dress! Like that you made it from jersey and looks good without the collar.

Beautiful dress..the color is gorgeous! I am loving BWOF more & more. The tracing of the patterns put me off for years, too, but I have now come to almost enjoy it! It helps me understand how the pattern fits together. Nice work, Erica!

Very nice! (I'm a Burda fan, too, especially of their pants and jackets ... so well designed.) You look smashing in your dress. :o)

Per usual - stunning! I love everything you make! Like you, I've wasted years of sewing before realizing how fantastic Burda patterns go together! congrats on your first Burda - I can't wait to see your next burda creation

Erica, You are a wealth of information. I just bought my first BWOF magazine and I am excited to try some of the patterns, especially after seeing your fabulous-as-usual results. Great color choice and the omission of the collar was wise decision because the dress totally compliments you.
