Description

This is one of my favourite patterns from burda. I love the neckline, once i got the hang of it that is lol. I have made the top and then i made a dress version. I have made this a while ago but i never got many photos on my night out (to busy having fun lol) The fabric is a lovely slinky jersey and feels great on. I loved kisses version. X

    Lovely fabric as usual. You have a eye for them! The neckline is lovely.

    I’ve been awful busy lately and am only just popping my nose in here for a bit!

      Thank you and you have been missed. I have been working flat out as well. I need a lot of work done on my house plus i wanted to take my mum on a really good holiday so i got myself a part time job as well.as my full time one. I only sew twice a week now so i post less, it’s not like i have nothing to wear lol . I just love sewing though x

      No wonder! I poked about a bit and was so surprised to see you less than your usual prolific self. You must be dead busy with 1.5 jobs oh my! YOu have such a lucky mum though :) I hope you both enjoy yourself at someplace lovely. Of course it would warrant a holiday wardrobe :))

    You girls make me think about sewing that.. although I had no intention. But your dresses and tops look so teasing:-))

    Finally, another project by you !! I’ve missed seeing your wonderful creations, like this one. Love the fabric and the knotted neckline looks sexy yet not too revealing, great dress ! xxx Your legs look as white as mine, I think we could both do with a suntan :-))

      Thanks ronnie-lee and lol. I used to sew every night when i got home from work and all week end but i got myself a part time job as well now for extra cash in an ice cream parlour (love it but i’m expanding daily lol) so its just a few nights now. I booked an 8 day all inclusive holiday to spain for mum and me though so i’ll be sewing like mad and dieting for that lol. No more ice cream lol .the young guy in the pic is my boss!! He’s 18!! Well he thinks he is hahah X

      Thanks so much rita,
      mum is finally looking more like herself. She has gained a little bit of weight which is such a relief to us. I booked us 8 days all inclusive to benidorm at the end of sept as she has never been all inclusive. I told her she can lie at the pool all day and drink baileys lol while i shop for shoes and handbags lol. I’m making mum some lovely tops for our hols and of course i will have 8 new dresses plus tops shorts etc. X

    Oh you look so great, as you do always. What a lovely group photo! It’s a happy fabric, this is nice to take a cool top & turn it into a dress.

    I think I’m inspired to get some great dress patterns to make into summer tops. Muchas Gracias for the inspiration!

      Thanks cchristie, i just love fabric with names. I bought this at the same time as my city scape fabric and both are lovely. The neckline is what made me want to make the dress as well as the top x
