I haven't visited BurdaStyle in a few months, so was most delighted when SpidersKnit sent me a link to one of their new designs. While that dress was a wee bit fancy for l'il ol' me to wear while knitting anoraks or growing mushrooms (did I mention my portobello kit in the laundrey?), this looks far more suitable for everyday. Yes, you can snicker. I'm imagining it in a terrible 70s metallic brocade. It's a bit of a pity design-wise that it doesn't have an invisible zipper, but a plus Lupinbunny-wise, as I don't know how to put an invisible zipper in. It's also unlined, which I'm a bit disappointed about. I'm torn between trying to put a lining in myself, and just being glad that I won't have to pay for lining too. Maybe I could spend the money I save on lining on some collagen injections so I can pout like the model. I'd like that.
I'm going to buy the fabric on Monday afternoon. Monday through Friday is my Super-Special Holiday - not even going to work on my dissertation. I'm going to sew Built By Wendy top, the Lotta Jansdotter reversible apron, a cushion cover and some placemats. And that Marie skirt. Busy me!
