Go go green!
Added Jul 4, 2010
It’s been so warm here for the past few weeks, so I picked up a very light and cheap fabric! It was a simple stripy one. I then tried to make big V’s with the stripes as I was inspired by a few other burdastyle members that did the same.
The top of the dress comes from Burdastyle, july, N.111A. I used a plain fabric for the center, I thought it was a nice contrast. Also, the back is longer on purpose, to go with the stripes.
This project was harder that expected…
- Cutting the patterns so the stripes would meet exactly at the front, back, and sides : HARD!
—> I snapped a few times at my boyfriend when I was frustrated… Sorry…
- Sewing_ not _in the grosgrain way: HARD!
- → A few treads were pulled… Sorry…
- Using a non stretchy fabric where_ burda said_ it had to be stretchy: HARD!
—> mental note: Don’t do it again
We went for a walk in the woods to take the pictures, and everyone was looking at us, as I was very very tall with my wooden sandals (mmmmm Love). The secret is that there was a few dogs jumping in the water behind me, and I was a bit afraid to get completely splashed :p.
