Thank you for all your lovely comments on the blouse I made for Felicity.
I’ve made a lot of stuff for her recently. But now, the selfish seamstress in me has forced its way out: the next project is going to be all about me!
Using this delightful scuba knit from EmmaOneSock
Why is it this fabric, apart from it being gorgeous?
If I delay too long, it will be summer and a scuba knit is too thick to be summer weather appropriate in Adelaide. So it has jumped to the head of the queue.
This fabric has already been very clear that it wants to be a colour blocked dress partnered with black.
I have two patterns vying for its attention.
BurdaStyle 09/2012 #121
I love the bottle shape of the insert in the BurdaStyle one and the cute cut-on cap sleeves and the wrap around side seams but I know the My Image pattern will be more practical with its longer sleeves. And I have no doubts about how good it will look: Timmithea has already made this pattern up with this same scuba knit and black lace.
Perhaps I should redraft the My Image dress centre panel to be more like the BurdaStyle one?
So, dear readers, which pattern do you think it should be?
