Yellow makes me Happy ;) When I saw this pattern in Burda’s vintage collection I fell in love with it. I found grey linen with stretch and yellow poplin in my stash and thought it would be great for this outfit. I have used yellow top-stitches. Sewing pockets in sloper was a new challenge for me, but I’m quite happy with the result :)

Material Notes

Linen with stretch, Poplin and satin for lining.

    Awesome outfit! Looks great on you. Congrats on being featured; well deserved. I like wearing items with yellow in them; I purchased some cotton yellow capris on our holiday, and my daughter’s response was funny. Wait until she sees the tops I will make to go with them. I however, didn’t tell her they are a soft pale yellow.:-)

    Hello Ellen, I always notice how perfectly your homemade clothes fit to your body. How do you do that? Do you have an ‘upper body doll’ your size ? Or does this ability come with all the experience? I am very new to sewing clothes and have difficulties getting them to fit my body, especially upper pieces, fitted dresses or blouses and t shirts . Did you ever take sewing classes, or you were just brave , and never gave up and learned with each piece over time? Your work just stands out so much. Congratulations. You really know what suits your body and I think burda patterns really know women’s bodies very well. Springtime greetings and it is always a joy to view your work, and what a worker you are, very ambitious. Julia

      Hi Julia, Thanks for your lovely words. BurdaStyle pattern fits very well and at the beginning of instruction in every BS magazine you can find a measuring table. If you measure your breast, waist and hip you can add or subtract for these measurements before cutting the fabric. To be honest I don’t have to try the garments on before I finished them because size 36 fits me perfectly.. I have not taken any sewing classes, but learn by experience over the years.. Wishing you good luck and hope this will help you :)

    yeah! super beautiful! I have the same dress on my to-sew list. But I guess I will have to shorten it a little. The combo dress-coat is perfect! love the colors too!
