I have had this idea for AGES! Last year, I really got to discover Burberry. I always thought it was an old British lady brand. For umbrellas and trench coats… Then I stumbled on Emma Watson’s campaigns with them, and then I visited their website, and I was caught off guard!
I used a Burda pattern as a base. It appeared back in the May issue (#137). It is plus size too. I like the a-line skirt and simple collar.I used an amazing woolen check fabric for most of the dress, and a cream fabric for the inside folds and the collar. Of course, my new habit is muslins making. It helped so much this time!
I am really proud of my blind hems (the first ones I have made EVER). I also love my buttons made with leftover fabric!
Oh, and I love my hat ;)
