Thank you all for your kind comments on my dress. It really was a special project to work on. And in answer to a comment from Cidell, I don’t think American church services are very different from here, the wedding I attended was in an Armenian (not American) church. This means that it has more old catholic traditions like the eastern part of Europe.
Last week I made this Knip mode blouse from the March issue (no. 107), mostly a simple summer blouse. Hope the weather will get better, till now it’s been too cold here to wear a top with short sleeves.
The uneven plaids gave me difficulties. You might know I’m the matchy-matchy type when sewing with plaids or stripes. On the other hand I didn’t want to spend a day on the cutting of this top, so I did my best not to match all. I started matching the darker lines, but then decided against it and made the white parts match. In the end the result is that though I tried not to match, a few lines almost match, which to me means “not cut right”. the not matching dark lines catch my eye. It’s ok, it’s ‘only’ a summer blouse, not a jacket with hours and hours of work, and most people (not sewing) will not notice at all.
The review is here. I might sew more Knip Mode patterns in future, at the moment their patterns are inspiring me more than BurdaStyle does. I even cancelled my subscription to BurdaStyle. It’seasily available in every supermarket, so I decided only to buy when it has patterns to my taste. Last months there were not a lot of patterns that attracted me, and usually I don’t sew a lot from summer issues anyhow.
