I’m going mobile! I just got a droid about a month ago, and downloaded the wordpress app. I have a feeling I will be posting a lot more often now…
I had to take yesterday morning off, but I finished the dress! What a relief to have that project out of the way… Now onto my wardrobe, and fast!
Now without giving anything away, a quick review. The pattern is fantastic, the fit is great, true to burda patterns. My particular changes modified the bodice and I think made the top a bit large on me. This dress took me so long! I believe it was about 25 hours of work (not including the muslin). Since I gave it a full lining, I think it basically doubled my sewing time. I tried, and mostly succeeded in creating a really nice finish that I was very happy with. There was a fair amount of handstitching at the end, which I normally despise, but I took my time and made it look nice. I’m very happy with the resulting dress. Even though its a bit simpler than I originally imagined (mainly because I wanted a print fabric), it is very much “me” which is what they wanted from us. Its also incredibly versatile, which of course I always love 🙂
Here is your teaser, and this is all I can share until the book is out.
