I had seen this pattern and liked it for a while. It looked comfortable and quick to sew. I know I can be obsessive about obtaining patterns, and I am pretty sure that at times I become a collector rather than a sewer. So the collector came out and purchased a few Burda patterns for $5 each at Spotlight, collectors are like that.
Usually I came home, make coffee and sit with my new patterns , go to my sewing area and begin to pull out fabric….think, procrastinate, plan and dream. This time the coffee came with me, I selected a textured grey knit and had it cut out, overlocked and wearing it by dinner. I remember sewing like that when I was teenager. I could shop for fabric and patterns on Saturday morning, ‘speed sew’ in the afternoon and wear it that night! I remember the excitement of new fabric, pattern and would not be able to sleep because I was ‘designing’ clothes. While the sewing teacher punished me for these characteristics the art teacher loved me.
The dress is slouchy and comfortable to wear and cannot wait to style it with tights and boots for the winter.
