burda pattern choice for first go!

JanF | Posted in Patterns on


Folks – i don’t know if this link will work – but this is my pattern that I have downloaded free from this site, and the one i am going to have a go at interpreting in my own way!!
If you do access it – click on the green small pic top right corner and perhaps you will see what attracted me to this style – note my mention of wearing purple!

Just checked – god i’m good – it worked – close up pics are brilliant – makes me want to just touchyfeel that fabric!

Actually its more of a blue in the pic – could i get away with purple??

    Is it the Minna 6007?  I like the design, was confused by the side angled lines on the line drawing, but understand better after looking at all the final products.  Good luck!

      I might need it - but hope the lines to the side seams will confuse the eye of the beholder into thinking its the dress creasing - not me!

    Which dress was it?  There are several on the site?

      Minna 6007 and yes I think its the colour that attracts me! Not sure if the style will suit at all - but thought that I might just get away with it - it sort of skims where i carry the weight and hopefully the low v will add interest above the less than smooth tum. I might even try this colourway - as I do think its great - just a tad violent!
      I might even please my hubby and wear it without trousers underneath - I've got some lovely shoes that do wonders for my legs. Normally I play safe and wear either longer dresses or tunics over trouser outfits!
      It is definitely going to be 1 dress I'm determined to wear. If i was honest I've lost count of the things I've made for myself - and then chickened out of wearing it because I've thought it just doesn't look right.
      Pete says they usually look great - its just me that hasn't got the confidence in my look. So watch this space for a pic when Ive done?

        Great dress pattern.  Hope you are successful.
