Description

Black & White is always a winner and these patterns are close to my heart.
Both patterns are from BurdaStyle 04/2008. It was many pieces to put together and changing thread with zigzag, but it is worth the effort. Enclosed pictures from an earlier dress, just opposite; white with black :)

    It is very complex indeed and so the easiness and neatness of your sewing impresses even more than usual. Wonderful , just wonderful:-))

    It looks great. Black&White are a strong color combination and you’ve made very strong combinations. The zigzag detailing is working very well.

    Fab. I love black and white together – has a real retro 60s feel to it

    This is a great pattern and the a-line suits your little frame so well. I’m sure the zigzag was tricky…outstanding work!!

    Oh wow Ellen, these pieces are so cool, I love the sporty look. It’s worth it when you spend time on something like this. I want all 3… if you decide to sell them, I’ll be your customer :)) Great fit on you too and the white one is my favorite.

    Love both versions. Really like the jacket and dress in black because there is so much versatility – summer to fall. Did the pattern call for zigzag topstitching? Or was that your personal enhancement?

    Great job as usual Ellen!

    Awesome outfit! They all look so nice on you. I really like the design lines on the jacket and dress as well. I like the way you did the top stitching! (I need that style of pocket!!)

    Cool outfit! So much work! Such accuracy! Black dress is nice and more practical, but with the same pattern white one looks different – more eyecatching and special, I think, colour – is a great tool )
