Burda 05/2013 #102 panneau print dress or...

Oh la. This pattern is perfectly sized for a dress in a panel print in satin, rayon, or silk - but I've done it in a featherweight cotton jersey from Girl Charlee. Like a wisp ...

I've been looking for months for a simple gown - something feminine. Love this.

--------------------------------------------Edited May 28 2013------------------------------

I've just realized how new this pattern is! I don't get the Burda Magazine, so I downloaded this pattern from Burda's online site. After the pages are taped together, the pattern is the same - no seam allowances - but tracing off one size is easy, since all the lines are black :-)

Here is my second version, done in a mid-weight cotton jersey (yes, just like the bubble pockets shorts!). More a summer shift than a nightie...

Both of these dresses were sewn with remnants from the stash - the pattern only requires a 40" long x 60" wide piece of fabric for the front and back panels. And a little something for the straps and bindings. 

And Burda is so nice - the pattern is marked for 05/2013 #101, the short version of this dress. Cute top for jeans and shorts...

I feel better - my first post was so short, lazy me... Ciao! Coco
