It looks amazing - I love it! And thanks for the great review - I have been thinking about this dress, but now I know to leave it for a time when I want a somewhat more difficult project.

Very chic and highly distinctive.

I'm never sure about interfacing the pieces indicated on Burda's layout diagrams. There have been times when I interfaced more than I should have. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one having this problem. The dress turned out beautifully.

Love it! This was one of my favorites from that month so I'm glad you didn't have any problems with it! Stretch fabric is a great idea too.

Beautiful. I loved this pattern when I got the magazine. Thanks for the helpful tips, I'll definitely refer back to them when I sew it myself.

I love your dress. Wise choice on the method you used to handle the inside of the contrast bands. I agree Burda's seam allowance instructions would have been too bulky. You did a fabulous job on the fit and binding. Enjoy!
