Instead of blowing it all on clothes and shoes (like I normally do) I decided to buy a dress form (which was on special for $175!!) and a whole bunch of new fabrics and patterns :)
Ok dresses..So when I found this fabric online, I loved it and bought it without having a pattern in mind... which is strange because I normally work the other way round :)
It's my first burda pattern, which I found to be a little confusing :| let's just say there was a lot of unpicking..
So the pattern was Burda 7132
First dress without lining, and my first facings.. the zip was also extremely long, and it took me a few goes to get it right and even then I wasn't 100% happy with the finished zip..hmmphh anyway here it is..
It's really hard to see the pleats at the front of the dress, because of the pattern, but they are really cute:)
Also I was browsing through a thrift shop and came across a $4.50 quilt cover, which I used to make another Butterick B5748.. Eekk I love the full skirts..can't get enough :) I will make so many more of these
dresses, they are fairly simple and only have 4 pieces, which is great!
Gee sorry for the long post :)
