    DanaRose84 commented on the project Squarepusher Dress

    Thank you! Of course, I won’t be wearing the high heels when I’m actually at a music festival. Makes for a better picture, though!

    1_listing

    This is the second dress that I’ve made from this self-drafted pattern. It’s great for wearing to summer music festivals!

    If you’re interested in seeing the evolution of this dress, all of my p…

    DanaRose84 added the project Wonderful pleated skirt!
    Dana_park_1-hdr_listing

    I love a full pleated skirt, especially with a bold modern floral print. This was the perfect project to show off this stunning fabric.

    This is basically a rectangle with pleats and a waistband….

    DanaRose84 commented on the forum topic Clara's dress from doctor Who

    What a cute dress! I’ve recently started drafting my own clothes and I’ve been using a book called Patternmaking for Fashion Design by Helen Joseph Armstrong. It’s a very pricey book but I was able…

    DanaRose84 commented on the forum topic Bias Sag on Circle Skirt Hem

    I agree with the above. Most instructions for making a skirt that is at least partially on the bias (usually circle skirts) is to let the garment hang for at least a day before marking a new hemlin…

    DanaRose84 commented on the forum topic New to Burda -- Seam Allowances ??

    I’ve found that the best way to add seam allowances is to just use a double tracing wheel when I’m tracing the pattern onto the fabric. They are adjustable so you can choose the depth of the seam a…

    I’ve been loving the crop top and skirt look for months and finally made myself an outfit to wear to my boyfriend’s CD release party. I’ve posted both of these items separately but I made them to w…

    Agood15small_listing

    Sorry for the terrible pun, I couldn’t resist.

    It took a couple of tries, but I’m finally happy with how this turned out! It’s a self-drafted pattern that I adapted for a sheer layer.

    I drafted this because I can’t wait for the warm summer weather! Very comfortable and I can ride my bike in it, but I’m not sure I’m 100% happy with it. What do you think?

    If you’re interested,…

    Wow, fantastic dress! I’m thinking about purchasing this pattern. How are the instructions? Did you feel they were adequate? Did you use two layers (chiffon and lining) as with the original dress? …
