Second try at this beautiful princess line top. Made this time in size 12, see blog post for observations on sizing and changes that I made to it. http://www.cassandramadge.com/2013/10/13/simplicit…
First attempt at this pattern, I used a size 14 (although Simplicity thinks I should be an 18). There is a run-down on the changes I made on my blog. http://www.cassandramadge.com/2013/10/13/simpli…
I was just wondering that too!
Burda 7798 with pleated front, invisible zipper and bias bound armholes and neckline. This time made in a size 14 (40), with some minor adjustments. More notes and pictures on my blog
I was making the #7798 dress which is an Empire line bodice dress, with tucks along the neckline and a bias skirt. The pattern told me to cut out a size 44 (40" bust), and it was definitely too big…
A soft jersey t-shirt. Fabric has a mirror repeat centre-front. Altered from Burda 3197 with a self fabric neck binding, which didn’t quite work. Need to stretch it even further to make it sit flat…
Using Burda 3197 (older version), it’s a short sleeved version of the Lydia top. Lengthened by a couple more inches.
