Great Yarmouth, ...






Can’t say I didn’t like this pattern when I first saw it, I just wasn’t tempted straight away. After browsing the issue again, I thought, maybe I should try this just for a change, because I normally don’t go for those floating skirts. And whar can I say, I love it!!!

    Wow – nice dress and it looks beautiful on you! ( I have to say, I’m a bit mystified as to why Burda calls this a “sheath” dress though).

      it is quite a differnet style, isn’t it? Seing all those favourable comments, I might experiment with patterns like this more often now. Glad you like it, thank you!

      thanks a lot Mary! I am very happy with this. you should definitely try it.
      the colour is great, but I was struggling finding a matching zipper, got one on Ebay in the end.

    I’ve downloaded this pattern but, looking at the instructions, it seems a bit complicated. But after seeing yours and Ellen’s, I’m going to give it a go! It looks great!

      thank you very much. I have to admit that I couldn’t quite get the instructions either, got a bit frustrated, put the dress away and went back to it some days later and just experimented with it. this way, no this way or maybe like this……and finally the penny dropped and voila! I am sure you’ll manage, looking forward to seeing yours :-))

      that is quite possible, I do actually lie in bed sometimes, thinking of projects, hihihi. But joking aside, don’t hesitate to ask and I will try my best to remember how I got there :-))

      Ha ha Chula! Maybe you dreamt all those ideas, first. But don’t forget how you did it – I might need you if I tear too much hair out! :)
