It's a beautiful dress, but those instructions hurt my eyes. I'll bet that color is awesome with your hair.

Lovely dress, well done on the translation and tracing from that mangle of lines!

A challenge I am not sure my eyeballs could meet - but I might want to try for such a pretty dress. Love your fabric - where did you find the magazine??

Lovely dress! I think I'd get lost in that roadmap; how did you do it?

Pretty dress. The tracing is amazing! Kudos for tackling it. I'd love to see it on you as well as on a hanger.

Wow, a simple dress in the picture but what a challenge with those tracing lines and directions. Love the fabric you picked.

Very cute dress! I have this issue but had not really looked at the maze of pattern lines - yeesh. Looks worth it though!

Very nice dress and looks so good on you. I have enough problems tracing Jalie, so I think I'll let this one go ;-)

Modellina looks like it is the same as Diana Moden that we find in Germany. I just picked up my first copy, and you're right, the tracing sheets make Burda look super easy! You did a great job on your dress, and congratulations on sewing in the "language zone".

I'm quite sure you could have made this without the pattern after looking at both the instructions and the templates, Yikes! I love this sundress. What fun to have a halter-style look without the exposure of much cleavage. I can't imagine trying to decipher that pattern but it was worth all of your effort.

I love this dress on you. It is a very flattering pattern. I wonder if someone would be able actually translate the instructions into something a lesser skilled sewer could make. I would love to have a dress like this. Thanks for the great review.Yes that color is for you!
