I have found something to use that wonderful silk in, thanks to Kim and Immi for their suggestions. Mooching on Pinterest today, my eye was caught by this pretty blue number… I had thought to change the collar though. I really like the “Just like a stole” detail from Pattern Magic 2, so I thought I’d give that a go, and change the sleeves a little. As summer is pretty much over here in the UK, I will want something to take me into the autumn, so I think a 3/4 sleeve will do.
I can’t make up my mind whether to have a plain but fitted sleeve or something with a bit of oomphf, like a sleeve with a cowl drape at the head?? I always liked this dress from Burda Style‘s December 2010 magazine. It’s style no 102 for those who want to dig it out..
I guess I had better get cracking with the paper and scissors then.. ;D
