The more I sew, the more I need something to wear!
This sounds antithetic? Let me explain: If I buy fabrics and supplys there ist no money in my normal budget left over to buy clothes ready made. Therefore the stuff I sew should be wearable everyday in my normal life and also at work in the office. I should avoid creating Ufo’s and I should sewing pieces which are to combine. Unfortunately I am a slowly seamstress and I tend to get of cours. This is a race against time.
Here is a new piece now. I used the Burda Magazin pattern 12/2010_106
and created a two piece dress. I can wear the blouse on its own or combine it with the skirt to a dress. I am not sure whether it is o.k. for the office. I am very happy with my pattern-alterations, but I am really dissapointed by the silk fabric… it lost its colour after washing and it is not antistatic. That means a little set back in my race and so I have to hurry up to the next piece! ;-) Perhaps I should give this pattern another try using the right fabric!?
