I used the longer weekend and the absence of my boyfriend for a little bit of sewing. In fact I haven´t done much else.
The first dress is a very easy pattern I made it as one of my 12 around the year series, where I make one piece of garment each month to keep up my motivation. I love the colors of this dress. It was a easy fun project, and I like how it turned out.
But as you remember I had very important plans for my holliday wardrope and in fact I already finished two of the three items:
For this dress I used IKEA cotton. I really like the print. It is so nice for autumn and easy to combine with bright colors.
And the Cape of this months Burda. Taking pictures was not very easy. It was so sunny and warm, not very good for taking pictures of cold weather clothing.
Normally Burda Patterns have a very good fit for me, so I didn´t measure the pattern before, never needed to. But this one was far to big. I could have made it at least one size smaller. Furthermore, because of the huge masses of fabric it cost me two needles and nearly my sewing machine.
I love it! I just can´t wait now for autumn to come.
