I decided to try my hand at my first BurdaStyle pattern.
I chose the 6012 Kasia skirt I downloaded for free from their pattern page.
Because it was my first printed pattern, and I wasn't sure about the sizing, I decided to do a test run with some wearable muslin I got down at Fulton Fabrics.
I went there looking for muslin, but they ran out. So, I went with a heavy/bottom weight woven fabric instead.... not bad for 2.50$ a yard.
Please keep in mind, this was a wearable MUSLIN. So never mind the contrasting pocket lining or black zipper.... like the song says, you've got to use what you got, to get what you want.
I even put my newly acquired sloper making skills (and I use the term 'skills' VERY loosely) and made a skirt sloper to see how much I had to adjust the pattern.
I was very proud of myself... thank me very much!
The skirt worked as a bit of a booster shoot... I've already pulled out a few more patterns and fabs to make my next few projects...
I really like this simple shift top from Vogue... "Very easy"... hmph, we'll see....
I also need to make a heavier weight version of the M5701 Dress. I got this black poplin fabric a few months ago...
....I'm on the fence about the fabric, but I love this dress!
I'm planning on doing this wrap skirt next.
But I cant decide which fab to use.
I'm also on the hunt for a pattern for another Inspiration Game Piece.
I've been carrying around these mag pages in my look book for the last several weeks.
Then when I went to Fulton Fabrics looking for muslin I found this lovely print in a poly-satin shantung fabric. It has a really soft drap and a very subtle shine... and it was only 3bucks a yard!!
