I like the dude behind the maxi dress the most.
Found lace on sales so I had to buy it. I used Simplicity pattern (1873) by Cynthia Rowley. Instead of the sleeve that comes with pattern for dress A, I decided to make regular short sleeves inste…
Thank you Mary!
This was my second time using the pattern. The first time turned out too small for me in the back. This time I added 2 inches to the center seams (tops and skirts) and it fits perfectly.
Thanks Mary! My dentist said that he had a shirt with similar pattern than he worn in the 60s wi…
A wrap dress with printed cotton and pink satin lining. I used Very Easy Vogue V8784.
You made it fit you so nicely. I like the dark green.

What is going on with Burda lately. I hardly get any inspiration from the site anymore.
I used left over fabric to make this skirt and decided to make a tie in the back for fun. First the waist was too tight so I fixed the pleats. Now, it is too big. When you live in a cold snowy pl…
Love what you did with it and the color, too.
Thank you both for the complements.
This green dress was made with jacquard fabric, which I turned inside out because I want to be able to wear it to work. I had to move the waist-line up twice and shorten the dress by about 6 inche…
