Tomorrow I am off to Berlin! I will stay there for a week and then fly to Sofia for 3 weeks to visit my family. So I thought I will shoot the final images of the cape and the leg-of-a-mutton dress (I know I still haven't told you what decision I took on the neck line!) there. Could be fun, cause I guess a lot of you were never there - it is one of the coolest cities in Europe!
I will see which projects I can start there. Guess some stuff for my niece and nephews will definitely happen.
So in the mean time - a dress I made some time ago but was again a bit lazy to hem it - it was winter outside anyway. The pattern I used is the Celestina dress from burdastyle, but changed the sleeves and made it out of a two side jersey fabric - the silver belt is the back side. I omitted the zipper and the bow at the back. I think I made the neck line larger too. Maybe a bit too large.
Somehow I managed to wash it wrong this week - so it shrunk (shrinking jersey is weird indeed...). I guess you can call it a tunic now... But I must say that the waist was too high in the pattern already.
Sorry for the blurry photos - when I was using the flash the "tunic" turned transparent. Guess no red carpet with this one ;).
Yet another funny backstage fact: I was reading the comments on my coat Elisabeth on the burdastyle site and somebody commented - talking in third person of me (I guess she didn't realise it is not an official pattern) : "She looks like a videogame character!" . I had to laugh so hard. This has some background - when I was at school and had similar hairdo my classmates were telling me I look like one of this Japanese mangas... So to all my friends, who know how much time I spent with my laptop and my programs and programming - I am getting more and more digital and the borders are getting blurry...
