I have a heap of patterns but I wasn't in the mood to trace out a pattern so I figured I might check out BurdaStyle because it seems easier to just print it out sometimes. So I ended up deciding on pattern #120 shown below.

This pattern looked awesome and I really liked the detail in the top. I knew it was sleeveless and as you probably already know I don't really like sleeveless dresses but low and behold the pattern came with these really awesome sleeves!! Was so excited when I printed it out that I didn't have to try and work that one out.
This actually gave me an idea to make a Copy Cat Challenge on my blog for those who might have an item of clothing you have always wanted to make!

So I guess my outcome was I loved this pattern. At first I didn't like how tight fitting the bottom was, which is the top brown and black dress. I had to re-cut the bottom because the size I cut was too small and in doing this I ended up just taking off the back triangle at each side. But I guess it turned out okay after the alterations and is wearable. But if I was to make it again I would definitely be doing the pleated skirt version.
I didn't even touch my fabric from Melbourne because I am too scared to use it I want to make sure when I do use it, it will be for the PERFECT dress or outfit.
The other thing I did in Melbourne was meet up with Neeno from Sew Me Love!! She is just adorable and such a nice girl it was so great to meet her and have a good laugh at our blogs and swap sewing stories. It sucks she's so far away because I would be wanted to catch up with her all the time. At least its an excuse to go back down anyway!

Oh and I went to Swedish House Mafia for those dance music fans. Totally awesome and we had VIP so even in the Melbourne rainy weather we had the best time! Plus free drinks!! We tried to pay for them and got shut down so it was well worth the money. Cant wait to go back to Melbourne was such a relaxing, fun and we completely spoilt ourselves shopping!
