Here is my new dress. I immediatelyfell in love withthiscotton/silk voile fabric. It looks like an old dutch master painting. Too badthere was nomorethan 2 m.


Edit: 
Jane asked what pattern did I use for the dress...it is from the 5/2006 Burda and sleeves from the 3/2008 Burda Style magazine



And this is my new blouse with the same fabric, the rest of it actually. Pattern is from the 3/2008 Burda Style magazine.

It says so:
