Burda 6832- A dress that comes in Peace

Burda 1

Greetings Earthlings- err, fellow Americans!

I bring you salutations from our Leader Belznar! We are so pleased at the warm reception we were given by your local dignitaries. The Mighty and benevolent Belznar found them both hospitable and excellent lunch……companions.

It pains our leader to feel that some of you do not recognize his kind overtures of assistance as the gracious acts that they are. Belznar loves you- never has he seen a more tasty- err, meaty, no- talented species. He wants you to know that he is just like you- he enjoys time with his family pod, hunting and he puts his humanoid suit on 1 flipper at a time, just as all of you.

I will now entertain questions submitted by you.

Hmm…..’does Belznar plan to destroy us and use our bodies as fuel’, hmm, not relevant……..’Why are our children being herded into pens’…….next question…..ah, here’s a good one!

‘Where did you get your dress?’

An Excellent question- showing all of the insight and thoughtfulness we appreciate about your culture.

I assume you refer to my natural fiber humanoid shroud. I studied the ancient domestic crafts of your people and built this myself to assist me in assimilating to your primitive ways.


There has been much study of your ‘social networks’ mostly containing the historical detail of a prominent family of four sisters, or horsewomen that will bring on your impending apocalypse. These sisters seek to control you thru the use of ‘fashion’ and the control of your dynamic leisure arts professionals.

To understand you, I have sought ‘fashion’ and spent many hours standing in your local textile markets, watching historical transmissions of artisans known as ‘quiters’ that eviscerate these cotton plant weavings into multiple piles and then needlessly reassemble them while others make appreciative noises.

Using my superior intellect and resources, I channeled your domestic primitives and made what you refer to as:

‘Smart casual dresses for various occasions. Sporty details of variant A with short sleeves are the stitched shoulder patches from imitation leather. Version B with notched mandarin collar and pockets in the front panel seams. Embellishing details are the many little buttons and also the slight leg-of-mutton sleeves.’


The drone at the textile market assured me that the synthetic derivative textile would provide a needed ‘pop’ of ‘fun’ to my ‘fuddy duddy tweed’. Hmm. I did not dispute these findings as I was more concerned with how I was to fit my arm thru the extremity of a fleeced animal as stated and how many little buttons constitutes ‘many little buttons’.

Your people have no desires to assimilate and are often seeking options for additional foolish embellishment. To better understand this ridiculous nature, I tried to think as your herd would and chose the longer of the extremity coverings- as it provided better coverage for my gills- err, suited your climate better. I’m not altogether pleased with the sleeve fit- lots of drag lines. I may have a drone reinsert them to get rid of these drag lines that i read about on your social media.


Now, if there are no other questions, please proceed to the large grey scaffolded building where you will be chosen for consumption- err, given prizes! Yes, prizes!

    This is awesome. Great dress, and I always enjoy your humor, er, dang that’s not a joke is it? Off to work out so I’ll be less meaty….
    PS I started a Jungle January dress in January… &might actually finish soon… (And have to say I’ve never before been inspired to use animal print so Belzar may also be into brainwashing?)

    Hilarious, I needed a bit of humor on this drab day. I love the dress and agree that the color blocked accents make it. That’s a great pattern, might have to purchase one for my own.

    ok this might be my favorite post every. why are you not a scriptwriter or some such thing? hilarious. AND your dress looks great, love that pattern on you and I think this is a keeper that should be remade in a summer weight fabric.


  4. Greetings, from one of your appreciative followers and therefore, by default, also of your Leader, Belznar. Your assimilation attempts have been noted. I think you may just get away with those drag lines and prove worthy of our Leaders efforts. Your pattern finding skills are exemplary. I applaud your choice of synthetic derivative textile.
