I can however still cruise for patterns and the latest little lovely I spotted was this Tea Dress on Burdastyle.

I was also thinking, to make it a little more interesting, reversing the under arm panel - so the dress is matte black with shiny satin panels at the sides.
Burdastyle have a massive catalogue of patterns available and they are all 'Print at Home'. Just download the file and print away! You do have to spend an eternity cutting and pasting it altogether though - this one was about 50 pages!
I also have found Burdastyle patterns to be a little on the large size, even when using the measuring chart properly - this one will probably require a practise run in some rubbish fabric or muslin cloth in order to get the sizing right before cutting into anything decent.
Has anyone out there much experience of sewing Burda patterns? Would love to hear your opinion and tips! :-)
