    Abigail Ball added the project Linden Sweatshirt
    Image_listing

    I saw the paint effect on a blog somewhere and can’t find the reference. She had done beautiful black mirrored paint on a white dress.

    Still interested? I have one or two friends that sew but we can’t seem to find a common time.

    Abigail Ball added the project Simple Grade 10 dance dress
    Image_listing

    This is the first time in a year that I’ve worked with woven fabric. It’s been knits for a while. It’s a simple dress but I had fun doing it and did French seams for the first time.

    Abigail Ball added the project Sleeveless Plantain T-shirt
    Photo_1_listing

    Based on the free Plantain T-shirt by Deer & Doe.

    I removed the sleeves and finished with what I call traditional binding on the armholes, neckline and keyhole at the back. I’ve been told it’s…

    I thought the style, colour and fit was perfect on you. I really think it compliments you. Nicely done.

    Why the photoshop shadow on her boobs (in the picture that displays his jacket)? It looks weird. And makes me wonder, uncomfortably, what else has been retouched.

    Abigail Ball added the project Three Flounce Skirt
    Photo_listing

    The pattern worked perfectly and fits me well. I now have confirmed that Burda size 38 is my size. The instructions work but are very condensed and hence may be confusing – it took me several reads…

    Abigail Ball commented on the pattern Tiered Mini Skirt 03/2013

    I’ve just finished this skirt and some of the pattern pieces overlap although, I assume, the directions are different if you download the folk skirt. I had a fright when I saw pattern pieces 7 & 8 …

    Abigail Ball commented on the forum topic Bad Pattern Instructions

    I like the fact that there are Burda staff replying in this forum. When I first joined Burda style last year I had the impression that this was a behemoth without regard for its users. Now I see th…

    Abigail Ball commented on the project MADE: SHORTS

    I think the whole ensemble works very well together. I don’t have the oomph to pull of metallic fabric but you do it very well.

    Abigail Ball added the project Faux Fur Vest Grey
    Image_listing

    Self drafted pattern. Not perfect but good enough and a good experience. It’s nice to have smaller projects to do while working on a coat. The skirt was originally just above knee length which didn…
