    I do hope you post pics of your dye efforts. I’ve been admiring the work of Sallie Oh just lately, and dreaming of the days I’ll get a chance to play with something similar. Of course, she dyes silk, so the effects just have to be gorgeous, but I love the idea of the messes one can make! LOL

    Hi sweet Mary! I just read a comment you made. In case you don’t already know it there is a third version of the twisted dress here but the lady didn’t add the link. You can see it here: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/twisted-maxi-dress There are also many on the russian burdastyle in various colors and bodytypes: http://www.burdastyle.ru/model/2013-burda-2-115 I hope these will help you to decide about your twisted version, I can’t wait to see it!! Kisses!

    How painful! (YUP, I broke my 4th finger many years ago) I hope you have sunshine to enjoy? Since you like sewing, you’ll enjoy not working :-) Rest your finger the first couple of days, then it starts to feel better before you know it! :-) { I’ve been a member on here for so long, and I this is the first time I looked into the ‘wall’. Boy, do I feel ignorant!! :-) }

    well i’ve just ordered my first Marfy pattern from italy, number 3127 to be precise.Its a one shouldered dress with drape detail and i’ve lusted after it since first discovering these patterns It cost €17 so i hope i can manage it??. I read the reviews after paying for it! stupid really lol. Apparently theres no instructions with it or picture so is for the more advanced sewer!! yikes , i normally sew without looking at instructions anyway as they’re often so misleading mind boggling and confusing!! vogue being a big culprit!! If i can sew it up i’m going to make at least three with different fabric and alterations. Has anyone made this one!! its absolutly gorgeous and was screaming buy me buy me so i obliged lol x
