New Dress!sf

Today I made this dress! It's from a Burda pattern (I forget which, but a new one). There's a zip at the back and the bodice is lined, the skirt has 4 panels. I gotta say, the Burda instructions were so hard to follow. I didn't realise that I needed lining until I was nearly done - it just never said the word "lining". Burda instructions are not for beginners! But the dress itself was fairly easy, although because of my unique size I had to alter quite a bit - I took the straps up about 3cm, which makes the bodice really tight... ah well. I'll fix it later.

Pictures!
