I've got most of my underlining for my wool coat for the Coat Sew Along. But what am I doing instead of ironing it on?? Procrastinating. I saw the 'New HotPatterns' thread at patternreview.com and I'm in love with this new dress of theirs. I think I could totally knock it off using these two BWOF patterns. I am trying very hard to not buy patterns because I have this spendy BWOF subscription.
This is from the current 11/2008 issue. I'd use this for the base and add the v-neck and gathers.
I also have this 6/2004 issue. It has s a deep v-neck that I could use to compare to the raglan top. I just don't know how exactly to make the gathers. I assume I'll slash and spread but I've never done it before. On PR someone said that Debbie Cook had done some notes on one she did earlier. I searched her blog a few times but came up empty handed.
I also really like the dress on the back left.
Back the The Coat.
