So I am wanting to sew, which feels good, like things are getting back to normal.
It's what I want to sew that seems a bit weird.
(1) Color Blocked Dress
Yeah, yeah, I know, this has been a thing for, like, years. But it doesn't look like it is going anywhere. Or, at least, it won't until I sew a color blocked dress. Because, you know, that's how my sewing machine works. It also controls the weather. So, once I sew a nice lightweight dress, it will promptly rain. Anyway, a few patterns I am considering:
|BS-09-2010-122. Yeah, I'm late to the party. Though, to be fair, when this|
issue of the magazine came out I didn't even know what Burda was,
so, there's that. Thank goodness for Ebay!
|BS-08-2014-103. I actually want to make this as color blocked|
and as non color blocked. One pattern many looks contest?
|V1329. I'm thinking a blue/teal instead of the black/white combo shown here.|
|V9024. I have some fun ideas for this one.|
Yeah, this is another trend I wasn't/still am not too fond of. But then I saw this Burda dress and I just love it!
|BS-08-2014-116. Yes, I know. As soon as I make it I'll bring on a cold front the|
likes of which SoCal has never seen before. Eh, if it rains I'll be doing everyone a favor,
so I'm down to try it. Even if I have to wait a year to wear it.
Yeah, I know, we are so over peplums. Except I've got fabric from LA that is just begging to be turned into this peplum top/skirt from the August 2012 Burda:
|BS-08-2012-113. I also want to make the skirt!|
And, again, yes. I'm late to the party.
(4) A Lightweight Jacket in a Tribal Print
|BWOF-03-2003-109A. I don't know why, but I just really|
like this old jacket pattern. It is casual without being sloppy.
And in a tribal print/ikat sort of fabric?
It would fit right in with current-day Burda!
