LisaB asked if the twist adds bulk at the front - well it does a bit yes which is why fabric choice is really important if you are sensitive about that. You need something thin, yet drapy enough to hang properly - my cotton is on the floaty side. I'm also thinking about shifting the twist detail to the side front, something like this skirt by Karen Millen. I even like the colour and I am not a yellow fan at all - finally the trend for bright colours may be sinking in.
I get my Burda magazine through a local bookstore who reserve it for me each month and I usually get it here in Hong Kong around the end of the preceding month. However April's arrived a bit early and I picked it up yesterday. Expect to see these 2 patterns from me soon, I love them both.
Alberta Ferretti dress 147
For a blog that is supposed to be a gallery of stuff I've made I realise there is not much going on here! However I have actually finished 2 dresses in the last few weeks, I just need to get around to photographing them so hopefully they will be up here soon. Then I have 2 more cut out - you have been warned - dress season is here folks!
And last, but by no means least, a huge thank you to both SewBarbie and Stepalica for nominating me for awards. I will study the rules and come back with a proper post on those soon.
