Sewing preview...

I have a crazy weekend coming up, it's the Hong Kong rugby sevens tournament which is THE event of the year in HK - kind of our little equivalent of the superbowl. But with rugby. For 3 days. And - I am guessing here as our American cousins are far more sensible than Brits, Aussies and the bulk of the other attendees - considerably more beer. So in preparation I am doing a bunch of cooking and shopping to make sure we don't suffer from malnutrition and chronic hangovers.

But I have been doing some sewing and some thinking about sewing so I thought I would share here, and take the time to do proper photos next week if I don't look too shattered!

BWOF 02/2006 113 Skirt
This pencil skirt is to go with the Rachel Comey knot blouse, it has some interesting design lines.


BWOF 07/2007 122 Top
I still need to finish the sleeves on this one, which is going to form the starting point for my Pattern Review mini wardrobe entry if I can get it all done in time.

Love the top - really interesting fabric and the top really shows it off. Skirt is interesting too. Burda has lots of nice pencil skirt variations.
Enjoy the weekend!

Both of these pieces look awesome. This is what I miss from Burda - interesting details like a button and loop closure on the bottom of a skirt band. So interesting! Love the fabric from the top as well and can't wait to see them modeled.

Skirt looks fabulous... but I can't wait to see how that blouse looks worn! The fabric and placement is a perfect match for the design.

I like the band and buttons on the hemline of the skirt. Very interesting. The top is unusual, and lovely, as well.
