There’s a belief that LBD is a must-have in any woman’s closet, but alas, I do not wear black. So I guess a red one will do the job?
This dress I made in last days of December, so that I have something new and pretty to wear on a New Year’s Eve. Haven’t got the chance to wear it since then, so I was pretty eager for warm weather to come. For this dress I combined two Burda mag patterns, the bodice is based on mod.107 from 03/2010, and the skirt is shorter version of mod.109 from 11/2009. I also made a 3 tier petticoat, using this great tutorial Didn’t have enough of yardage so I made it less puffy, but I do plan to make another one. Until then, this one will serve the purpose – and my cat really likes it :)
When I said that I was eager for warm weather I didn’t mean THIS warm! It’s freaking hot here, and that makes my daily activities pretty hard (like breathing for example). Last week I escaped from the city for a few days and went to my parents house, desperately hoping for a cooler climate. That was also the opportunity to took some countryside pictures! Hope you like it :)
It’s made of cotton, and it’s actually sheet fabric so it comes in a craaazy width! From a 2m of it I’ve managed to sew this dress, plus a full pleated skirt, tote bag and a machine cover! Crazy, right? This can’t really be seen in the pictures, but it’s red with tiny gray dots. Love it :)
