Asd soon as I saw the pattern on Burdastyle I knew I would make it one day… for years the pattern lay on my desktop, then finally at the start of last year, I decided this is the time. I found some of this lovely dark blue velvet, which I thought would be a good substitute for the material suggested. Seriously, this is one of my favourite clothes now. Every time I pull it out of the wardrobe, I think “Oh yeah, this!” and immediately change into it.
this was the second time I put in a jeans zip – I’m getting better at it! and the first time I ever did in seam pockets. So a few new skills picked up.
Dark blue velvet ( think it might be meant for habadashery but who cares), turquoise cotton for pockets, blue buttons, zip
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
