Twin-set; Dress & Jacket

Added Nov 12, 2013

Nedre Vats, Norway






I still have a lot of holiday project I wanna share, even if my holiday is over now..
I have used viscose jersey, and for the dress I have used pattern #115 Burda 06/2009. The dress has a little hole in the back and I think this is rather cute. I have used the same fabric as bias tape around the neck, armholes and for the back.
The pattern for the jacket (or the sweater) I found in a Scandinavian magazine 08/2011. This was original intended for a workout outfit, but I think it’s very nice to wear on chilly evenings.

    Such a lovely outfit! The print is so cheerful and I love the peekaboo hole in the back. You have a lovely figure and you make the dress look so good!

    Fantastic, this is just what I need for the Aussie summer! Although looking at where you’re from, you wouldn’t be needing this in Norway would you? Haha. Love it though, looks great :)

      Hi Kocotte, that’s nice to hear, and I agree :-) I left a message on BurdaStyle support yesterday because I have the same problem.. Hope they will fix it soon! Looking forward to see your new dress:)

    What can I say?… Only sigh :-) An excellent outfit – the print plays the first part in this twin-set and the pattern accompanies it and both of them are in the power of the great composer – you!

      That’s nice to hear Beth – I do love sewing with stretch fabric, and especially with the overlocker it’s terrific! :)
