My first project!
The pattern was free from the Burda Fashion website, but the link is broken now sorry.
I followed the pattern except for minor adjustments.
I had to put up with a machine that would break halfway through a stitch, and got to experience how much fun elastic is to thread through casing againandagain when you let go of it accidently :|
I meant to make it a bit longer, so for this one i think it will mostly be worn with stockings.
Very dodgy pics, I was just keen to publish my first dress ever made!
Batiste, Buttons, Elastic
Burda Fashion for the pattern, and Mum for helping me decode the strange instructions :)
PLUS this Burda Style site, which i am so glad to have found. It makes sewing even more fun :)
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
