Burda Dress 117A

I made this dress using the pattern from the May 2009 issue of Burda World of Fashion. The pattern is dress 117A. I used an amazing [thick] stretch cotton from Britex in San Francisco. I was heartbroken when they said they wouldn't ever get any more of this fabric.

Mix N Match

I love this post from one of my favorite sewing blogs, B-school Studio. She explains in pretty good detail how she combines patterns and "fly by the seat of her pants-ness" to copy amazing dresses. I love to mix and match patterns...although I've never attempted anything this intricate. Maybe I just will.
