Burda dress from 1976

I rarely use my 70s dresses but still love the style. The pattern for this dress is from Burda Moden July 1976 and the fabric is a soft polyester with machine embroidery and glued on metal dots bought by my mom in Abu Dhabi. I used the pattern as a base and draped the top of the dress after it before cutting. I didn’t want to waist any of the embroidery. The skirt is twice as wide as the pattern to get volume and so that I can walk with my normal stride. My amusement comes from my hopeless attempts posing, sorry for that.
