While I’m pretty much in love with every dress from the November Burda WOF cocktail collection, I found myself flipping back to the yellow dress, #105 more than the rest. It’s only 4 pattern pieces, but that 90 degree dart at the waist is just too cool, and I’m very much into sheath dresses this year. I still had some gold duchess satin leftover from the pirate jacket lining, so I lined up the pieces and was able to fit the dress out of the fabric with hardly any scraps to spare (I just love it when that happens!).
I’m still waiting on the invisible zipper I ordered online to be delivered, but as I was waiting I thought I’d try my hand at making a fascinator to match the dress!
I used netting leftover from Gez’s princess dress and a black sequinned flower I bought in a big bag from a Jonny Loves Rosie sample sale years ago, and I just played around. I took a bunch of photos as I was making it, though, so head over to BurdaStyle for my “How To Make a Fascinator” tutorial.
UPDATE: It appears as though my How To was lost in the BurdaStyle migration a few years ago. Good thing I saved a copy! Download the pdf tutorial here!
As soon as my zipper arrives I’ll finish the yellow dress, and then I’ve got a bunch of Christmas stuff to make before I can finally get back to work on the FW/07 Collection!
