♫ ♪ I’m Aquarius

Here is a dress I made in a hurry for my unplanned birthday party.. You may recognize the pattern for this dress – #133 from Burda 12/2012.. I’ve used it so many times before ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ) and it was a safe option and something I had only couple of hours to make.. To be precise, I had 3 hours before my class for conservation the pottery and an hour or two after that to prepare myself (and all other finishing touches) for the party.. The fabric is very fine cotton with embroidery which is hard to see because it’s all black.. I had to add something special to this simple dress and went with horizontal pleats on upper front part of the bodice.. Cute detail for which I had time to make.. Since I didn’t have time to redraft the pattern for front bodice, I just marked places I wanted pleats on traced pattern and cut it.. After that I pinned all the cut pieces to the fabric.. I’m happy that everything worked out without any problems.. Because I was in a hurry, the pockets are missing.. Everything else about sewing this pattern you could have read with my previous variations.. I really love how this turned out.. I was missing a little black dress in my wardrobe..
