South Of Eden, M...
I used a Burda pattern (1/2010) for this and I have never been more wrong.
When I saw it, it had a retro flare and stroke me as a Jackie O dress.
I imagined it with the lace piece running along the front panel, but somehow it didn’t look appropriate with the shape so I cut it at the front and sew the second part around the waist .
I had to add front darts and back darts to it because otherwise it looked as a sack.
I also had to get rid of the sleeves because they didn’t fit well with the altered pattern.
However, I must say that I like how it turned out despite the experience being a horrific one!
The lace is vintage – I have taken it from an old dress of my mom’s and have always wanted to pair it with this red lax I had in my stash. And I am glad I did.
The based on button didn’t work so here is where you can find it:
1(1/2)m lax, 1 m lace
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
