I stumbled into this blogging site
I must say – it has revised my wish to get back to doing creative dressmaking!
By that I mean seeing what I could do with a burda pattern!
Does anybody else feel the same when you look at what the younger bods get up to? I know you might all think that as I’m teaching I must see loads of interesting ideas – and I do – but for some reason this site has made me think about a)what I wear myself b)how staid I am without actually realising it re. my own wardrobe and c)just HOW creative can I be and still wear the stuff I make??
Now I’m on shorter working hours – I’m going to get back to more dressmaking for myself because a) I can be inventive b) it will hopefully save a little money(when i find good quality fabric on the net[in an older post I have moaned about the lack of good local fabric stockists]) and c)now I’m getting close to that age when I can “wear purple” I won’t worry so much about wearing unusual clothing.
Watch this space!
PS> I know a lot of the stuff on the blog is for younger, smaller women – but Burda is great for the styles for me(ie. older and fatter) so it is now up to me(and as many of you who might possibly think the same after browsing the site)to upload our own versions of the Burda stuff we make!!
PPS. forgot to say that the downloadable patterns are ok too!
