Wrap Dress (Burda 5/2006-115)

Wrap dress is ready and I am pretty happy with the result. Didn't make any changes, except little fitting of the sleeve's head. Unfortunately the design of the fabric doesn't allow to see the details of the pattern, like lovely folds at the skirt.
I wear a spaghetti strap vest top underneath since the neck is low as usually with Burda patterns. I decided on this option when I was just considering this pattern.  Actually the low neck was one of the reasons why I hesitated sewing this dress.
The fabric is rayon knit.

Though it is still snowing here and the temperatures are below zero I am in the mood for warm weather sewing and knitting. I would like to make a sleeveless LBD that I could wear with a jacket in winter and on its own in summer. I am thinking about this dress from the February issue of the Burda Moden magazine.

Till later...


  1. This wrap dress is classic and it looks great on you. I think you'll wear it a lot.
    I realy love the pattern for your next LBD. It caught my eyes in the magazine unfortunately it is not available in my size.

  2. Lovely wrap dress and it looks wonderful on you. That is a great LBD pattern.

  3. I love all your dresses. This one is very elegant.

  4. Oh, liebe Maria, Du siehst in dem Kleid wieder so toll aus!!! Mit einem Wickelkleid ist man ja immer klassisch- chic und sehr elegant angezogen, weshalb ich diese Art Kleider sehr mag. Aber dieser Schnitt gefällt mir durch die Falten am Rockteil besonders- superschön!
    Das Burda-Kleid auf dem letzten Foto finde ich auch sehr schick und steht auch noch auf meiner "to do"-Liste.

  5. Looks great Maria! Wish I could see too.......
    The shift dress has a great neckline! Sounds like a good next project to me!

  6. Your wrap dress is so pretty. It fits great and shows off your figure. I also like the Burda sleeveless dress, though I was a bit puzzled by the pleat/gathers used only on one side of the front skirt. I was wondering if a dart would work just as well.

  7. It is so nice to see a talented dressmaker's garments. Well done. I'm guessing your Russian weather will soon be much warmer. I think your summers are hotter than ours in England and you have less rain.
