All done! Photographing projects in this weather is not easy! I waited for daughter No2 to come home from school to do pics, but it was way to dark by then. We did take some photos indoors, but the lighting isn’t that good. So back outside this morning, in the rain! Grrr. How do some of you bloggers manage to get such good shots indoors? Anyways, without further ado, here’s my take on Burda’s pattern #108 from 11/2012.
This fabric is devine to wear! The only thing I’d change when I do this pattern again, and I will make another, is to cut the necktie/band on the straight. Especially if the fabric has as much movement as this viscose! Despite putting it on twice, the one side has twisted, which is most annoying! If I had cut it on the straight grain instead, that wouldn’t have happened.
With the addition of darts at the back, the blouse fits much better. And now there’s plenty of fullness in the sleeve too!
Fuzzy again, but at least I’m kinda smiling! I love that fabric!! I wonder if it came in other colourways – and where I can get my hands on some…
Grim concentration to make sure no shaky hands! hehe Self portraits aren’t easy.
Janene over at Ooobop! has posted a review of December’s Burda, so I guess I have more to make!!
