Well summer is here in Queensland!! The sewing continues to make some new clothes for my summer wardrobe. I wanted to get a few long dresses that are just easy to throw on and wear when you don't want to have to really dress up but still want to look nice.
Can't believe how hot its been in Brisbane this weekend. I started yesterday off by going for an early morning run. I was scooting along and a small little foxy terrier ran out in front of me and then started following me up the road. I was one of those kids growing up that saw an injured or lost animal bought it home for my parents to have to deal with. So it only being 7am and already blistering hot I was a bit concerned for this little dog and yes, only being about 600m from my parents house I decided to take him there and figure out how to locate his owner.
We did end up getting onto the owner and at least I did a good deed for the weekend and hopefully have some good Karma coming our way. You know your parents love you when your taking stray dogs home and you don't even live there anymore hehe.
Back to the dress...
BurdaStyle Pattern Photo:
The BurdaStyle instructions are improving. They are making them a little easier to understand. Although they don't have all the step by step pictures other sewing companies have. I knew what to do for the front slit from the Burdastyle Tie Top that I previously did. There is a front slit tutorial that will help make this one.
I liked that it was really simple you could just throw it on. I didn't make my front slit as large at the pattern dress shown above. I still have to wear a small singlet underneath though which I think is the intention of the dress shown above (I am hoping anyway lol). I put my elastic waist a bit further down on my bum otherwise it would have made my hips looks huge due to my body shape.
I made the front slit a

Anyways hope everyone else is enjoying their weekend. I always forget its starting to get freezing cold in other parts of the world.
Also, a big thank you to Jenny from Brydie Couture for recommending my blog on hers.
