So it has come to this…
.. she’s wearing the bed sheets!
In my defense, they are very very cute bed sheets, and they are brand new, so no one has slept in them before ^^.
But let’s start slow:
Summer in Germany is hiding behind gray and ugly clouds. It is raining nearly every day. Bummer. So, what can you do on your day off besides reading? Right, set your Kindle to “text-to-speech”, grab a summer dress pattern and start sewing!
The Dresse’s real name is “Etta” from the Ottobre Magazine 2/2012.I fell in love with it’s sleeves and cute ruffles that would hide my belly. I thought that maybe I could make Summer happen by sewing myself a summer dress. So I spared the curtains and aimed for the bed sheets ( no really, I bought them for the purpose on harvesting the fabric only, I swear!).
My dress is about 8 cm shorter than the original pattern. I like short dresses. I have nice legs that I want to show off. I also added a a ruffled hem that I made with my new friend: “the ruffler” (I’ll post about him, soon). Pretty, eh? I’m not so happy with my choice in buttons. They kinda get lost in the pattern. Maybe I change that on another rainy day.
