Here are the line drawings, for ease of reference:
|About-to-be-famous colour blocked dress #117|
I'm not first to have at this one. I am pretty sure that Audrey has that distinction, and Melissa is second. Their dresses are fabulous! There will be MANY more of these, I predict.
In my drive to use fabric from stash, I located some burgundy wool double knit. My only hesitation in using this fabric is that it is quite firm, and based on flat pattern measurements, this dress is designed with negative ease.
I am hedging my bets with extra-wide seam allowances at the side seams and CB.
I'll need a working zipper. I have no intention of having a shiny strip down my backside, so my non-colour blocked and non-exposed zipper dress will be a good deal less zoomy than Burda intended. However, I think it'll be a great dress anyway.
|Knit pants - #120|
This pattern could be a favorite due to its high waist, slim profile, interesting back yoke, and the strip of fabric that runs vertically between the front and back pieces. I made a jeans pattern with the latter feature from the June, 2004 issue so many times I lost count. The strip smooths out one's hip curve very nicely.
I have high hopes for these.
|Sleeveless dress #110|
I have some amazing turquoise wool crepe which will look great with the chunky bouclé I have earmarked for the jacket.
February could be a sewing marathon!
