BurdaStyle 07-2011-110

Pattern:       BurdaStyle 07-2011-110
Size:             20 (altered for size 40)
Fabric:         wool
Techniques: invisible zipper, invisible hem, pleats.
Alterations:  added full lining and modified the front pleats

I started this dress 2 weeks ago I finally got a chance to finish it this weekend. 
I have to say that I'm not very pleased with the result. The fact is that I altered the pattern a little to fit it for my size (40) and it didn't turn out that great.

On the bright side, I sewed an invisible hem and a back vent for the first time, so at least I learned something new.

Here are some more pics:
