Folks, I’m happy to report that my mojo is back. As you may have gathered from my posts, I’ve been super busy and have had a distinct lack on interest in sewing. Well, that finally broke this weekend. I wanted to whip up something to take to Michigan in a few weeks. I got an idea in my head about a late 60s style look for the weekend.
This dress is from the September 2007 Burda Magazine. I’ve sewn it twice before. I’ll post photos on my persons in a few weeks after I get to wear it. My main motivation for using the bamboo denim was to have something to wear this Vogue jacket with. If you recall, I never knew what to wear this jacket. I also figured with spring just reaching Ann Arbor in May, I’d want some extra coverage!
I also managed to serge a whole in the back of the skirt. I’m tentatively planning on adding a bow or something to the hole. I’ve also started a knit maxi dress that I’m pretty excited about. I’m taking that to Michigan with me too if I can get it sewn up on time.
I know dressform photos are rather dull. But, it’s been raining and going to keep raining the next few days. Plus, I really like to wear and take photos of new clothes the day of. So, please, continue to be bored 🙂
