15cm of Fame

29 May

There is this saying “Everyone got their 15 minutes of fame”. In my case it were 15cm. After posting my second version of the mullet dress at BurdaStyle I got an e-mail from Burda if I have this picture in higher resolution and if I would let them print it in one of the next issues of BurdaStyle maganzine in Germany. Well … yes and yes.

Once again I used the pattern from BurdaStyle 03/2012. The Dress isn’t very spectacular from the front.

I used some contrasting fabric for the pockets.

It’s the same fabric I used für my skirt of the Lucy outfit. To spice it up a little bit I added a panel to the back.

I wore this dress for day 29 of Me-Made-May’13. Now it’s almost over (and to be honest I don’t have many selfmade garments left anyway)

That was not my day … I even forgot to add the day in my hand …

    Hi, I just found out about your blog though another blogpost. Have no idea why I have not seen your blog before as I’m also a WP blogger. Excited now to follow you and see what garments you sew! And, Wow, that dress is just gorgeous, i can see why Burda wanted you in their magazine! Congratulations. All of your outfits on this post are just lovely. You have a very classic yet modern style, love it!
