And, I’m not sure the fabric I picked for the Hello, Sailor! pants are really going to work. It might be too heavy for the heat. It’s a heat wave in Baltimore. I’ve tried to not talk about it since ‘weather’ is the lead story these days. And, quite frankly, it’s not snowing. But, yesterday’s cotton trousers from GAP were sticky and I think I just need to stick with light, airy and loose for my trip. So, taking a mental break before I decide on my next two or three pieces.
Plus, I’m making an overnight trip to New York on Friday and have plans back in Baltimore all day Sunday. So, a break is needed from the sewing machine.
In the meantime, I noticed that I have sewn a LOT from one paticular issue of Burda. It’s the January 2008 edition. I’ve made four so far and have a fifth cut out and ready to be sewn — hopefully in time for China. I thought it might be intersting to show what I’ve done from it.
I actually never wear the shirt below 😦 The yellowish interfacing bothered me way too much. Plus, I couldn’t wear it under a blazer because it would wrinkle too much. So, it was strictly a spring / summer staple. It’s a shame. It’s a great shirt.
Ummm. I wore this about three times before most of the buttons came off (I didn’t know how to use my machine well then). And, it’s been hanging on my closet door for the last 1.5 years waiting for new buttons. Sad, right? Maybe I should do that on the bus tomorrow.
What’s the most Burda patterns you’ve sewn from one edition? Do you have a favorite Burda magazine of all time?
