So, I am back. After trillions of calories, and (I will not talk about exact numbers ;) ) of kilograms, I realised my wardrobe is, strange but true, reduced to unimaginable size. And as my new year resolution was in 2013 to do all my clothes, I was pretty busy. I always day-dream about some nice, »young« looking staff, and when I make them in my size, they … ah, you know… at some age, its become difficult to hide age… you are simply mid 40! So, back to my sewing. This time I decided to go for nice summer dress from Burda, 2013/6, model 117. And this time, I add lining! First ever! And I am sooooooo happy! The dress is made from linen and lined with very light cotton. I abandoned the side zipper as the dress is comfortable enough to pull it over my head. I will certanly use this pattern again… BTW: its the sema fabric as my bag
