Your version is heaps more attractive than the dated Burda photo, I have been waiting for a puffed sleeve Burda pattern! Could see you wear this with a lovely leather belt. Btw I am also originally from s'pore, now in Oz

Really beautiful. Modifying the dress to be more fitted is so excellent.

What a beautiful dress! I think it looks stunning on you. Proof that stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing!

Love your "Never Say Never" dress. I like your version so much better than Burda's.

Thanks for the review, I have been thinking of trying this and seeing your dress is such an encouragement, now that I really like your dress I will definitely have a go, great fit, thanks for all the details.

Never say never is right. This dress is super! I really like your version of the sleeves and the more fitted bodice. I might have to look at this pattern again, I had rejected it when I first got the magazine, but you made a wonderful dress from it.

That's the only thing on my list from that issue! But I do plan more modifications to knock-off a RTW dress I saw online. Thank you for the info regarding the bodice!
