Punctuality isn´t one of my virtues ....



  I do not know why, but my life is total chaos lately, since early this week I had planned to sew the dress that was on my wish list since May 2001, (many years on the waiting list, no? ?) this beautiful pattern appeared on  Burda magazine  in May of that year and since I saw it, I knew that someday it would be in my closet.
    


                       
However, this model of the magazine, is a skirt and I knew I wanted a dress with it.
So, What did I do with it ???... I chose the model of the skirt and joined a pattern of a top that appears in the same magazine, simply by splicing the waistline and altering some darts so the pattern fit.



To obtain this dress, I looked in my stash some white fabric, I found a meter cotton pique and some cotton poplin for lining it, in my mind I played with the idea of using a pants in my closet that takes four years ago and I do not use much, a pant a little uncomfortable for me it became the perfect combination of fabric contrasts requests by the dress.


   So, I had to make do with sewing in the afternoon on Saturday and now, at 23.40 pm, I have completed this ....
The dress is almost finished, fully lined, so it remains to determine any alteration with the green fabric for the neckline and armholes, I still do not know what I do with this, I want to think over this fact.
   And then embroider flowers, of course, this embroidery is the point of attraction of this dress, for that I have the Sunday evening and Monday (which is a holiday here), so I hope that by Monday night perhaps it is finished, until then ....
  Happy sewing, Ladies!

  3. The pattern photo of the dress is so gorgeous and you are doing such a great job. Monday is a holiday for us as well; I know that you are going to be busy finishing the dress. Can't wait to see wear it!
    And by the way between my social calendar and my two daughters I had to leave the house 45 minutes before any event in order to be on time.
    Rosy, have a lovely holiday!

    I like your dress variation, it will be gorgeous! I suppose you'll add the embroidery details as well?

  9. Ya echaba de menos tus creaciones mágica, mi preciosa Rosy.
    A lo más que llego es a hacer una falda; aunque bordar se me da bien, jejeje.
    Te abrazo fuerte.
