Hickory, North C...
I was able to steal a few minutes today to finally take photos of my completed Marilyn trousers (taken outside in the 100 degree heat, no less)! I used a lovely brown herringbone wool/rayon blend suiting to make them – a steal at $6.00 per yard at Jo-Ann Fabrics. This is the first time that I’ve used a Burda pattern and, even with the limited diagrams, the trousers were pretty simple to make and I am anxious to use Burda patterns again! I initially made a muslin using size 42, but they were a tad snug in the waist so I ended up using a size 44 for the actual trousers. No adjustments were needed, although I did add 1" to the length. I’m really pleased with these and will definitely be wearing them often this fall and winter. Also blogged here"!
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
