Several Places, ...
We want to make a vintage collection with slim and full skirt dresses, so I tried to realize another draft from apfelebluete, who is already known as my ‘BurdaStyle sewing partner’. Here it is, the Nadja #2 which I made for my daughter who wore it on her end- of- course dance.
Oh my – at first I thought this could be a simple and quick project but at the end I met a real personal challenge which I mastered only in parts. Finally I made a two-piece dress. I am most proud of the skirt – I LOVE the skirt – and I like the collar but I am NOT perfectly satisfied with the bodice part. Next time I am going to do it perfect… in another sewing life… after finishing all the other things on my to-do list.
We shot the photos again in our next-door palace garden.
I have a good mind to make some tutorials concerning the collar or the skirt with its shaped waistband but I still don’t find enough time.
