Just stunning! What a cool story you have with this dress too. Someday I'll bite the bullet and sew with real leather. How did you find out that Fauck supplied Burda? I'm always wondering where they get their beautiful print fabrics.

Just stunning. I admire the fact that you could look at the line drawing and the not-very-inspiring dress in the Burda WOF photo and be inspired to come up with this.

That is absolutely beautiful!! I love the color and with the belt it looks so much nicer than the original.

What a beautiful dress. Sewing a buttery soft, good quality leather is a real joy, but it is really difficult to find. Lucky you to be able to buy from Mr. Fauck.

You have me drooling here. Love the color and the softness.

Lovely. The color is just perfect for that dress, and I was drooling at the idea of a dining room table covered in skins of that quality. Worth the cost - you look expensive!

How beautiful is that? I've never even thought to really make up a garment in leather! Oh, the possibilities!!

Beautiful dress...the color is lovely. I like the way you belted it too.

I can't think of a colour that would be more effective in that dress than the gorgeous blue you used. Truly beautiful, you must be so thrilled with the dress and belt. Since I'm in Canada, I will definitely have to look up Mr. Fauck. Thank you for the inspiring review.

A smart and distinctive dress, and what a gorgeous colour, too.

Absolutely gorgeous! Your version is SO much better than Burda's! I adore sewing with leather but the cost of really nice, buttery leather means a handbag once a year is about all I can afford! Have you got the website address for Fauck so I can dream over his skins? If he doesn't take credit cards, what does he take? Is it European bank transfer only? :( (the UK is on a different banking system and it's a big surcharge to send euros)
