I told you guys I was sick and tired of the gray winter. Here’s yet another bright and cheerful spring item. Yesterday was a blizzard but today it was in the 40s. We are so close to having no snow! I keep wearing sandals at school and hoping it will be warm when I leave school.
Here’s my Burda Challenge for May. This is from the Burda magazine back in 2011. I always liked the pattern and thought it was cute. I still think it’s cute. This fabric is from San Diego at the Swap Meet. I bought this from a guy who has bolts and bolts and bolts of fabric. Some of my favorite fabrics have come from this guy. I think he sells them for $3/yard. (This cardigan, this dress, and this dress to name a few.)
Here’s the line drawing from Burda. I really like the twisted shoulders. It’s hard to see on my version because the print is so crazy. In fact, it’s hard to even see any seams. I drew them in for you below.
I have plans for another knit dress in a day or so. We’ll have to see what comes whizzing out of my sewing machine next! Happy spring, you people!
