The Burda shirt dress is back. I found a lightweight denim that should work. Depending on how large it is, I may choose to add darts in the back to make it more fitted.
See that cute little sleeveless thing on the upper left? How would you like to shell out $278 clams for that one? Granted, it's adorable, IMHO and silk but I draw the line at $100 for a sleeveless silk blouse from a mass marketed store. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE that store but right now I need to be more frugal. Here's a close-up.
This will be my inspiration for a cute floral top. I found a nice border print floral today and will use that for the blouse. Simple bias tubes adorn the front and flowers are on the right shoulder- they don't look that hard. I will need to add a facing piece on the left shoulder unless the strips are carried to the should seam- thinking on that one. The top will cost me about $10 but alas, it's not silk but rather cotton.
Tomorrow the cutting and sewing begins!
