Sun and a lot of beautiful new fabric in my stash make me feel like sewing for myself. It`s a sewing storm going on those days. My head is full of ideas and inspiration, days would need more hours.



I`m blown away by this fabric. It`s such a nice quality. I found it at Petite Couture. Wendy has an amazing selection of fabrics in her shop. Sadly, the fabric I used is out of stock. She can`t reorder, it`s a pity.


Pattern is out of the Burda Style 09/2012 no. 134. It`s a design by the british fashion designer Matthew Williamson.

Smallest size is 36, I had to take in quite a bit to make it fit well. That`s why the side-parts do not line up exactly by the side seam. Too bad, but I can cope with it. I prefer a nice fit.


The fabric hides the back walking slit perfectly. But there is one, a nice and handy detail on a pencil skirt.


Side parts are the reverse of this gorgeous fabric. It provides a nice body shaping. Pockets make it comfy and casual. A new favorite!

  1. Hi, ich habe dein Kleid gerade auf Kollabora entdeckt und es sieht echt traumhaft aus!
    Der Stoff zusammen mit dem Schnitt, echt wunderschön und steht dir auch super 🙂 Am besten finde ich den Uboot-Ausschnitt vorne und dann das V hinten, echt clever ;). Schade dass es den Stoff nicht mehr gibt.

    • Hallo Amelie, Danke vielmals für den netten Kommentar! Ja der Schnitt gefällt mir auch sehr. Klassisch und schick aber gar nicht steif. Vom Stoff hätte ich mir auch gerne noch einwenig nachbestellt.

  2. Wundervolles Kleid, ich weiß gar nicht, was ich anderes dazu sagen soll! Ich habe deinen Blog gestern zum ersten Mal besucht – und wurde nicht enttäuscht! 🙂
    Liebe Grüße

  3. You are absolutely stunning in this dress! The way you used the reverse side of the fabric is such a cool design feature and really highlights the beautiful, beautiful fabric! Wow.

    • Hey olu, the golden background is the wall in my walk in closet. It`s probably the first shoot i couldn`t use just natural light. I think i won`t use this wall as often as the blue one. But i kind of like the result for this dress.
