hi, dears!
I'm sharing with you my last project. I finished it last weekend. Unlucky, I started around 14 months ago! why unlucky? because: I got a mess with the pattern (I forgot why I cut there and there!), I had cut BAD the fabric, I got 6 kilos fatter from there, then I have to introduce some changes to be able of using it! not all the changes were good...  Undecided
I cannot provide a link of the picture where I found the original (it was a Nordstrom.com) because this happened in 2007, and it's not on line anymore.
Anyway, I still think that sharing it could be worth  Grin

Thank you!
and I realized that I like many clothes by Trina Turk, so maybe I'll try again, more carefully now,
by now, I started a dress, I copied the model from an old sewing book, I made the pattern and modified it. I cut the fabric. It was almost not enough fabric... I did my best effort, but then I realized the fabric lines didn't look so fine after the way I cut it... Tongue
I used 1.50x1.50 I had,
I would have needed 2m x 1.50 for a very good job.
Let's see. When I finish it, I'll post it too  Cheesy
(in the right branch, not here of course)
