I need to make me a dress…

November 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

I’m going to a party or maybe an anniversary dinner (hint! hint!) and I need to sew myself a dress. Here are a couple of candidates I am looking at right now that is tickling my sewing fancy. I’d like something flattering to all body types, a pattern that is cheap and easy to alter and to fit on my figure, and easy to put together as I only have five days left to make it. This is going to be my first dress in a while, the last time I made a dress was for my youngest sister, a blue sweetheart neckline cocktail dress with a matching bolero. Urgh, I wish I’d taken a picture of it! And of course, where do I turn to for inspiration? Where else, Burdastyle! Here are my candidates for my first dress project:

Candidate #1 The Danielle dress. This dress, for me, is the most popular dress style, Burdastyle free pattern ever produced.

Check out the member creations for this pattern, and it has a whopping 196 member creation uploads to date! There are more than a couple of BS member design variations that are pretty cool.

Candidate #2: The Heidi dress also by Burdastyle

Talented much!! Here are a couple of member created Jenny dresses that I liked:

These are truly inspiring, don’t you think? You know, if I had time, I’d make all three designs. 😀 Wish me luck!
