I wanted to make a special bodice and made different drawings, but came up with a new idea to make an applique jewelry instead.. I found this “Japanese” cotton in my stash and made circles with a glass and appliqued these on the front, and I chose to use lilac embroidery tread for this. Since this cotton voile are transparent I had to use lining for the bodice. I thought the bodice was a bit short for me and decided to make a peplum, and I used pattern #115 Burda 08/2013 for the pleated peplum. I made a invisible zipper at the left side, but also I had to make buttons at the back of the neck, so I could easily take it on.
For the pants I made a drawing of waves and appliqued these on the front and back parts, and I used an invisible zipper at the left side. This was a fun challenge for me ;-)
