My first go at a full pattern… this took me FOREVER (at least 6 solid hours), but all in all, I think it went well and I am pretty happy with the outcome. Each step was definitely a learning process. This was the only fabric I had enough of to do this, and it was a little challenging being the thick, texturey weave that it is. Seems like drapery? Next round (if there is one) I would like to use a stretchy wool. I really did like the use of wool in the original presentation of this burda pattern. Found those wool knee highs at a thrift store this week. They are radical!
