This photo shows exactly why it was good to do a ` wearable ` muslin . The back is tightish ( but wearable ) but look at all that fabric pooling in my lumbar region . This has not happened with my other sewing ever !
With the back adjusted I think this will make a terrific dress , I do really love the magazines version but mine is a bit meh. I will wear it and give a go though . I just also wanted to include a photo of the Patrones pattern sheet - much clearer than Burda`s and Ottobre`s as well.
For my next project I can truly say I am tickled pink .
I used the very very popular blouse pattern 115 from Burda April 2014 . Heaps of people have made this one and I can now see why. It was easy to make, very comfortable to wear and is just a bit different to your usual top. The only change I made was to lengthen the blouse by 5cms . I used another pale pink embroidered fabric - cotton voile this time - which is a bit sheer . I realised this pattern with the double crossed over front would be a perfect match for the sheer fabric.
I highly recommend this pattern . I hope everyone has a good Christmas. I am certainly looking forward to getting 6 days off , eating some good food and spending time with my precious family.
