I told you I would...and I did. I said I was going to make my new favorite pattern, Burda 7798, as a dress and I did. Here's the proof:
I know I've already effused about this pattern, but I've got to go on some more. I ordered the fabric from Purl with the intent of making this dress, but I didn't get around to working on it until last Friday afternoon. True confession here: I'm not the speediest seamstress in the world. Despite that and probably because of the ease of this pattern and how beautifully it goes together, I still managed to finish the dress that same afternoon and wear it that evening. You were right David, I was going to blog about the dress.
And I'm not done with this pattern. I've already ordered more fabric for another dress. This time in a Denyse Schmidt print. I also have plans to batik and dye some fabric for a third version of this dress. Luckily, I live in Texas where summer temperatures will probably last through September, so I'll have plenty of opportunities to wear my new creations.
