Nice weather is finally here!!! Hallelujah. We had a huge ice storm just two weeks ago, but it went up to 30c today, so I think I can officially take the snow tires off the car!
That said, I actually sewed this dress back in March, as one of my projects for the Cali Fabrics blog. In that post, I go into detail about what Liverpool actually is… so if you are curious, go check it out!
This is also my first-ever experience sewing a Burda pattern! It is B6439, which I chose because I don’t have an indie pattern yet with the same style. It is designed for wovens, but of course I made it in a knit… and I’ll do a complete review when I talk about the next version I made, which is the more bat-winged view!
In case you can’t tell from the pictures, I really, really like this dress! I’ve worn it a bunch of times with leggings, boots and a sweater, and it was a perfect pop of colour… but now that it is finally warm, I can also show off the sassy-but-classy V-neckline in the back. The skirt is my dream pencil-skirt-with-ease shape, and I warn you know, the skirt alone is already a TNT!
I’ve written a lot here about how I tend to overthink and stress about things… so you might have noticed that I’ve let my two-posts-a-week schedule slip, and I’m trying to make sure that every post is motivated by the joy of sewing. I never had trouble coming up with enough posts, but on top of the Sewcialists, it sometimes got a bit much. Thanks for being supportive and awesome no matter what!
For me, this dress is all killer, no filler – it puts a swing in my hips and a spring in my step every time I wear it!
Do you have an outfit that is making you happy right now? Is it a much-loved classic or something brand new?
