Lyndle, thank you! I'm actually thinking of making it again in a red rayon fabric I have. The ruching and the sweetheart neckline are sooooo flattering. I wore this to a wedding in October and got a ton of compliments. It's a great dress! Burda actually has some very similar dresses (including one in a knit) in their current pattern catalog!

So glad to see you had a good experience with this dress! I just downloaded it and I'm going to start making one for myself -it looks so fabulous on you that it gives me hope that it'll look nice on me too.

Me again! I was on the Russian site and saw other FOs of that pattern. Here is the link: http://www.burdastyle.ru/model/2012-burda-12-144

Beautiful! This is a really nice dress. I love how you describe the neckline - that's kind of the holy grail, isn't it, a neckline that looks great and stays put!

This dress is so pretty on you. Great fit and styling. Love the neckline and hemline - definitely a one-of-a-kind. Oh yeah...you'll turn heads! ;)

Wow! That is one very sexy dress! It looks amazing on you. I like your idea of the tulip sleeves for summer too.

I have this magazine and have never tried Burda patterns by tracing them. This is soooo fabulous on you I have to give it a try.

You look so good in this dress! You did a great job. I've never sewn Burda before but you've convinced me to try. This dress will be perfect for a wedding I have coming, and since we appear to be approximately the same size I have an idea how it might look. Thanks so much for the review. Having never downloaded a pattern or had to add seams lines this going to be a real learning experience.

Great dress on you! Very flattering shape. I agree with lakaribane, I think it warrants one in every color!

@Arted, it took me ten minutes just to find all of the pieces on the Burda pattern sheet. I showed my husband and he said, "I am color blind. I sure can't help." :D
