Yesterday I finally got going on my Burdastyle sweater and also managed to finish it. Stay tuned for a blog post about that project (you can see a sneak peek on Instagram). While I enjoy sewing, I love the planning bit more, hence why I’m already thinking about what’s next, even before I’ve finished my current project. Such thinking also helps me get motivated to finish a project – so that I can start the next one!
While I might squeeze in a quickie project before I embark on this, I feel really excited getting started with this dress. I’ve owned this beautiful peach voile for years, but have struggled with finding the perfect pattern. But this dress from Burdastyle 12/2015 feels like a match made in heaven, especially since the design allows me to really utilize the embroidery and the scallop edges. I will use those parts on both the butterfly sleeves and on the skirt. So no hemming! Plus I already have some voile for the lining, so I the only shopping I need to do is buying a zipper.
