"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere." - Albert Einstein

Hi Urbanites! How are you all doing? It's been a while since I've blogged. I've missed it and missed you guys. I really really do.... :/  

Okay moving on to the outfit I'm wearing, which I wore to a friends' wedding. I made the dress using Burda Style 7178. This is actually my first time sewing a Burda Style pattern, can you believe it? It was pretty interesting how they put the patterns together.. For example, I've never made a dress that has a lining and also a neck & arm hole facing. There was also an underlap for the slit which I didn't understand, so I omitted it. I chose the pattern because I wanted something different and unique, but not over the top for the wedding. I searched the internet to see if others have made the dress and wanted to see what it looks like on them but I wasn't able to find someone that had made the skirt-over-dress version.

I've been noticing the skirt-over-pants trend everywhere, and wanted to make something that represents me, something classy and stylish. By the way, the dress is fully lined, but not the skirt. Also, they are 2 separate pieces that can be worn on their own. I decided to pair my outfit with a gold belt and a pair of gold shoes I wore at my traditional wedding. 

Thanks for stopping by..

xo, Yetunde.

  1. That's definitely different - I've never seen this style before. The dress turned out well and looks great on you. I love the fabric!

  2. I never would have look at this pattern. After seeing what you did with it I went right out and bought it. Hope my make look half as good as yours.

    1. Aww thank you. I'm sure it will look good. Let me know if you have any questions
