Pattern Review Burda Style 3/2010 #107
"The Cocktail Version"

Line Drawing

Dupioni-Mint Green
100% Silk 

Since this pattern was altered and ready to go, I made it again to wear to a mid-August wedding.  The alteration and construction details are here.  A few changes were made because of the dupioni.

1) I didn't prewash-I will dry clean.
2) I underlined the entire dress with voile.

3) The bodice is self-lined and rayon lining for the skirt.

4) I used a tuck as a design detail by adding 3/4" to the width of the straps.

It's great to have a pattern that is ready to cut and sew!
