Just another update form my sewing room..
The best surprise for me on my birthday last year was I received a copy of Burdastyle Sewing Vintage Modern book as a gift from a close friend of mine.. Isn't it a wonderful for a passionate sewer ;) This weekend I worked on two projects and managed to complete both.. First I want to blog about the Jackie dress from the book.
This dress is a variation of the base pattern from the book.The steps are given in the book and we have to draft it. It was clearly written steps. I enjoyed the process of drafting and making. The instructions in this book is so much better than the first Burdastyle sewing handbook. It has truckloads of illustrations on the sewing steps.
I made it for the RTW knock off contest at the patternreview.. As per the rules of the contest we have to make a garment as similar to the garment you saw originally , It could be anything current or from the past.. LOL I feel my dress is very similar in style but not my smile and pose .. The model in that book is too very cute to imitate (sigh!)..
I love the collar. It features a bow on the belt too.
Materials used : Satin Silk material.
Closures : Invisible Zipper. The review of this pattern can be found here.
I have submitted this entry for the copycat challenge as well. Read more about it here. I will be making a lot of projects form this book. It can be viewed here as and when I update. To see the other dresses I have made click here.
