Anne Cherry thanks for the info. I will check eBay and see what I can find. There is a great dress in the same issue that I would love to make.

This is beautiful. Love the topstitching idea. Really highlights the skirt detail.

Love your skirt. The top stitching sends it over the top. Great job!

Thanks everyone for all the lovely comments! CraftAddict - I ordered a copy of the Sept 2010 BurdaStyle issue via Ebay. Just checked the BurdaStyle website and unfortunately they don't seem to have this pattern to download. I think it's worth getting the whole magazine - it includes a great turtle neck top that's had numerous great reviews on PR. I think, like Vogue Magazine, BurdaStyle's September Issues are the best of the year. (mind you I just saw a preview of the May 2012 issue and it looks like another winner!)

This is really pretty. I love your idea for embellishing the skirt. The hand stitching really takes it up a notch.
