Burda Style 07/2011 - 110 Dress - On Me

Well it's Friday and I have some make up on so here as promised are some photos of the dress on me.

Having already bumped into the tripod Barney also wanted to be in the shot.

I am going to have an urge to stick my hands in my pockets all the time while wearing this dress, I love them!

This is me mucking about trying to recreate the photo from the magazine.  I'm sure Burda will be calling me any day now!


Here you can see that the pockets and pleats stick out when viewed from the side, this is down to the design and is unavoidable, but I can live with it - don't make this if you can't!

Wow - this dress looks amazing on you!!!! What a perfect fit - and I love the colour. I may have to search out that pattern....!

Pretty Kitty said...

You look fabulous. Any pouffiness reads as a design feature of the dress, not as a figure flaw. This is probably due to the remarkable fit on the rest of the dress.

Irene said...

Hi, I am Turk. I watch you with pleasure. You did great. Incredibly beautiful. I'm trying. I have no time for sewing. The time when I'm doing a thing or two. I'm watching you. I like. I want to sew. I love this dress. Here I follow the magazine. I planted all of them want to do. Became super. I was wondering something. Patterns here are generally large. Become abundant. Other molds to your body fully dressed up in clothes and sleeping? So you are 38. Again, be into the body mold 38. Upon you has been full. Well done.
