♫ ♪ Cemetry Gates
These are two dresses that I sewed using the same pattern no. 109 from Burda 01/2010..
The first dress I made for myself a couple years ago using cotton plaid fabric.. Sorry for the blurry photos, but they were taken in October 2010, by my friend Snave while we were visiting the cemetery.. I didn’t want to take new ones because I love these pics as they are.. (And it’s better not to see the mistakes I’ve made in my less experienced sewing days)
More detailed photos are from dress no. 2 which I made for my sister Dina.. She decided to stay behind the camera, so I was the model.. Dina wears a size larger than I and that’s why the fit of the dress is not so perfect on me.. I bought the fabric to sew her a dress as a birthday present.. Actually, I found two fabrics.. The first dress was finished for her birthday, and this one waited more than a year to be made.. The fabric is black cotton with thin gray and lurex stripes.. I thought that a shirt dress would look good with it, and Dina picked my “cemetery” dress as the one she likes.. The only thing I didn’t do with both dresses is sewing pintucks.. Parts of the dress that I like the most are pleated skirt and a lot of buttons (in my version of the dress)..
