Sheath Dress (Burda 9/2012-109)

I envy people who know how to choose the best pattern for the particular fabric. I don't have this talent and for me it's always a gamble and the result is a surprise. With sheath dress from September issue of Burda magazine the sirprise turned out to be a pleasant one. The fabric didn't need any complicated pattern to show off. At the same time this pattern has some interesting details like a boat neckline and long side darts that spice it up.

The dress is versatile and can be dressed up and down. No wonder, this apply to sheath dresses, that's why they are so popular.

More later... Happy sewing!


  1. Lovely fabric and perfect dress for it, love a sheath dress.

  2. Liebe Maria,
    ich finde das Kleid sehr gelungen und schön! Das Stoffmuster passt sehr gut zu dem Schnitt! Es steht Dir sehr gut!
    Mir gefällt das Schnittmuster auch sehr, habe im Internet aber von vielen Passformproblemen gelesen. Musstest Du auch viel an der Passform ändern?

    Liebe Grüsse von Sabine
