I am fascinated by independently synchronous ideas and creative impulses. The global reach of BurdaStyle highlights the phenomenon. Two people from opposite sides of the world can upload a purple garment within moments of one another. Or, have you seen how many coffee date dresses have been uploaded in just the last week? And… as I completed BurdaStyle’s great basics, a couple of Lydias and a Carol here in Australia, so did Yoshimi in Japan. Fascinating!
A couple Lydias because the first plain black one, made to size 36 (my usual size), swam on me. I remade it in size 32, using the printed material, fits a treat.
LYDIA: Scoop neckline, lengthened sleeves (2.5 inches) and body (1.5 inches)
CAROL: Took a couple inches off the top as I prefer tights to sit on the high-hip. Sliced an extra curved sliver off the top front this allows it to sit straight across the hip where the back uses a little more length in the in seam than the front.
P.S. I didn’t do any of basting (as provided in the instructions) when making Lydia and I also left off the neckline interfacing on the second print version. Very happy with that!
PLAIN LYDIA: cotton rib knit. PRINT LYDIA: cotton knit. CAROL: Viscose/Elastane.
