I like this dress it is very elegant with beautiful details and the fabric is gorgeous.

Sewing pattern for this dress

The line drawings are similar the only changes would be to add the slit at the seam at the front and the difficulty would probably be to add the lace applique.

Personal sewing project: T-shirt 113 Burda 06/2013

I just completed a simple T-shirt from Burda magazine/ June 2013: a shirt with small cap sleeves and princess seams in front and back.
Pictures and line drawing from the magazine:

This pattern is pretty easy to make, I chose 2 types of fabric, black jersey and dark grey faux leather. The different steps of the sewing:

And below after a little bit of ironing, not on the faux leather obviously though! 🙂 It will be perfect for this spring and the faux leather gives some originality to a T-shirt that would have looked quite plain otherwise. It has a great cut like most of the Burda patterns.

I love this dress I really want to make a similar one for me but maybe in a more luxurious looking fabric as this one looks a bit flimsy, but I love the cut and style of the dress and Kate wears it perfectly.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore it on 3rd July 2011 at Québec City, and she wore it later on during the day arriving at Charlotteville airport with a pale pink tweed jacket and a different  (and more elegant in my opinion) pair of shoes.

2- Kate wore again the dress on 8th July 2012 at Wimbledon to watch a tennis match. She wore it underneath the Nessie Tweed Jacket also by Joseph.
