If you asked me what my wardrobe was missing, I’d say maturity and blouses I can wear all the time. I can’t do much about the former, but the latter- I am working on. Now I want to keep you reading, so let me say that this is not another of my meltdown Burda rants. I LIKE THIS PATTERN! 7220:I made view B, then altered it a smidge. The back pleat is great in theory, but just toooo huge in reality. It removed all of my dainty shape. So I added the little bar thingy (technical terms- me loves them) to the back too. Mirroring – oh, I’m innovation on 2 wheels.Now since this is Burda, I feel like I need to do these pictures in a Burda way- but I couldn’t find and abandoned airport, a may pole or an old villa to hang laundry in, please settle for this:Now pretend the backyard is Barcelona and those are tiny bulls. On saturday we dined on more turkey at the mominlaws and the dachsies were overwhelmed with her giblets and her huge backyard. Much short-legged joy. Other than using some self-bias on the neckline, I changed nothing else. The front did cry out for some gaudy-ing, so I added the button…..Hey, I think I found more gravy! This was around the time the dog involved photo shoot went bust and I can’t figure out what I’m doing in most of the pictures- I’d make a lousy historian. I think that I was summoning a dog, but I could be moving an invisible albino rhinoceros out of the direct sunlight….Ok, not sure about this move either- I may be hand cranking his tail so he will run faster….
Anyhoo- I hope everyone is having a great week and please- try this pattern!
