Is it too early to be thinking Summer 2012?
It's Burda Style 7798 pattern for a dress and tops.
I like the simple lines and A-line cut skirt on the dress.
I picked it for the dress pattern. I think it would be perfect for spring / summer. I would just like to add some pockets. Hmm, patch pockets in the front or side seam pockets. I'm going to have to think about that one.
I'm going to have to make a muslin for this one. I'm still trying to figure out my Burda Style size. I've learned that not all pattern companies fit the same way.
I plan to do something that I don't normal do, mix fabrics. I thought that I would use the print fabric for the bodice and short sleeve pieces and the gold coloured fabric for the skirt portion.
The fabrics are of the same fibre content. 100% cotton stretch sateen that is now found in the reduced section of my local Fabricland for 70% off.
I really do love the deals that you can pick up at the end-of-season. Swweeeet!
