It seems that I am not the only one thinking that Burastyle’s retro dress (12-2012-141) would be a good match for Tessutis competition fabric, gridlock.
But I am not as fast as Sue. She has already made a lovely sleeveless version.
Indeed lots of people have already completed some truly wonderful things. The pinterest page for this competition is inspiring
My creation is still under construction.
I’ve made a toile and tweaked the fitting.
(Hey don’t judge that bedroom: its tidy for a teenager!)
Changed the neckline to flatter me more.
Drafted and added a lining (Burda only lines the front skirt and back, not the front bodice)
Added red accents to the facing and decided that red overlocking thread would be much nicer than white or black.
Bought a beautiful shell button.
Bit there is still lots to do: Sleeves, hems, zip….
Deadline is midnight on Wednesday 3 April…
