I noticed this morning that BurdaStyle have a gallery up of the member’s sketches from the BurdaStyle handbook:
It’s really cool to see everyone else’s sketches, not just for the garment I made but also all the other patterns as well.
Here’s my sketch, I was living in WA at the time and it was probably summer so I was in a beachy mood:
I actually did two sketches, this one and then a more business like one in crisp white with pin-tucks running down the front worn over a dark pencil skirt which I liked as well, when I find it (buried in my computer somewhere) I’ll post it up.
Apparently my finished garment is on page 111 but I don’t have my book yet, they just confirmed my address this week so fingers crossed it arrives as an early Christmas present 😉
I can tell you now that it isn’t pink. I got sent purple fabric instead which I wasn’t super enthusiastic about when it first arrived but in the end it looked good. We got sent thread as well but my thread turned up a day after the courier deadline, also it was orange, hehe, so good thing I didn’t wait and ended up using some from my stash.
11 sleeps to go! 🙂
