next up

Well, the dress was a hit at the wedding and I am SO glad that I had a strapless dress to wear. The weather was 100 plus degrees and the wedding was outside. Although we were able to sit in the shade during the ceremony, our table was in the sun. We finally all moved the table into the shade, but that was after sitting in the sun for about one hour. Anyway, needless to say, it was HOT, but I stayed as cool as possible.

I guess this has me in the strapless mood now. I've seen a couple of good reviews on PR for this Burda top (I guess we can't way BWOF anymore.) It is from June 2009 #113. I have some mystery fabric that I bought in San Diego last week that is similar to onion skin. I'm about 1/2 way done, so we'll see how it goes!

I liked this pattern when it came out this past year. I can't wait to see your version.

Thanks for leaving a comment at my blog. Mannequins are a blessing - if you have a friend who can help you, you can come closer to a body that will fit you, but it's really hard to do this alone. I'm wanting to do online classes and the like, but am looking for a good medium. My current class is overflowing, which means I will do another, so obviously there's a lot of interest in this, and I can see why. Once you understand what all a mannequin can do, you really do want one - especially a double of you. Love your strapless dress - they're a godsend in hot weather.
