Experiments with Burda
This was my first attempt at making an outfit for a big occasion since the incident with upcycled upholstery fabric. That experience left me with a dress split down the back, from zipper to hem for the most part of a ball. While a great conversation starter, not something I would care to repeat. This dress on the the other hand, remained intact, and has me thinking I could maybe try doing this again.
The fabric was a fantastic silk twill from Global Fabrics. I took it to the counter under the false impression that it was included in the sale. Even at full price, the dress came in at a little less than a bought one, and fit a whole lot better.
I'm also giving Pattern Review a try. You can find my first ever review over here.
