Tendance Doreé

There are pluses and minuses of having too many patterns in your home workshop. One of the minuses is the difficulty of choice. So when I got an invitation for a carnival party in February, I decided not to seek that ideal pattern of a dress but simply make something from a fresh March issue of BurdaStyle magazine. Their wedding collections are always very festive and usually offer several dressy models. I loved many of their dresses and eventually chose this set of a pencil skirt with a peplum top (models 106 and 109).


Есть плюсы и минусы обладания большой коллекцией выкроек. Явный недостаток – это конечно же их огромный выбор. Получив приглашение на карнавальную вечеринку в феврале, я решила не тратить время на долгие поиски того идеального платья и сшить что-то из свежего мартовского номера. Весенние свадебные коллекции неизменно задают праздничный тон, и я с удовольствием взялась за этот костюм из бюстье с баской и прямой юбки.


I had this silk gold jacquard that I wanted to use for something more casual and this set seemed like an ideal plan – I could wear the skirt and the top separately for that sparkly flash that is so in trend right now. I made an experimental model in cotton to see how the bodice fits. As I had only 5mm wide rigilene for the seams, I used to bands of rigilene for each seam. For my height 174cm I made the bodice and the peplum detail longer by about 1cm.



Костюм шьется в мгновенье ока и для меня это был личный рекорд в 2 дня. Для топа бюстье я сшила макет, чтобы убедиться, что выкройка подходит мне. Поскольку у меня был регилин шириной только 0,5 см, я нашивла по две полоски в каждый шов. На рост 1м74, я опустила линию талии на 1,5, и удлиннила баску на 1 см.





The top has lining in the bodice part. The smooth silk surface of the fabric allowed to make the skirt without any lining. I used about 1m 35cm to make both garments.


Ткань –шелковый двусторонний жаккард швейцарской марки. Для 38 размера я использовала около 1м35см ткани. Топ бюстье  выполнен на подкладе. Шелковистая изнанка материала позволила обойтись без подклада на юбке.

  3. Fabulous! It's great that together it looks like a cocktail dress, but the pieces can be worn separately (stating the obvious I know, but I'm thinking this could be really versatile for those of us who don't have cocktail parties to go to all the time!!)

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment Allison! ))
      Me too, I was very attracted by the idea of wearing the top and the bottom of the dress separately. Just too add a bit of metallic shine to a sober outfit..))
