When I first saw it in the magazine I really wasn't interested. However there was a one on Pattern review which I liked. It has a big pleat in the back which I really liked for a style factor. It is almost 2 dresses in one. The underneath part has the bodice made from lining and attached to the top bodice layer as a lining at the shoulders and armholes. It could easily be made as separates, though I made it as instructed. I think it would be nice as separates. Instead of using lining for the under bodice, normal fabric could be used and a separate top could be used as a cover for the dress for cooler evenings.
I made my usual size 42 (Burda sizing - eek, makes you sound enormous). I did find it to be quite loose fitting, not as tight as I imagined.
Anyway here is my finished dress. I don't think the photos do it justice as it is hard to see the separate top and skirt so it looks a bit dowdy. Trust me, it is much better in real life.
