      I’m just washing the chalk out of the dress! It’s just a simple shape and I think it needs some adjustments but I like it :)

      :) ok! I thought it was issue 05/2013. I think the proper name is “neck yoke”

    Hey girl! What blouse are you sewing for your mum? I have sewn a couple of blouses for my mum too, but I can’t convince her to let me take some photo of her and post them here:)

      Hi. I’m trying to make blouse 115 in Burdastyle magazine 05/12. I had to upgrade the size and do some major bust adjustments for her as she is quite generous in that area! I made a muslin and that looked great. The fabric is crepe de chine so a bit slippery. It’s such a nice pattern but I’m really stuck on the neck bands. Wish I knew if it had a proper name then I could search the web for techniques. I guess I’ll work it out eventually.
      It’s a shame your mum is camera shy. It would be so nice to see some photos. I see you’re making a maxi dress..tell me more.
