Skirt 111B from Burda 4-2010 in rust poplin
Trousers 111 (muslin!) from Burda 11-2009 also in rust poplin
Dress 113 from Burda 8-2009 in navy dotted chiffon
Last but not least, I am putting the finishing (hand-sewn) touches on a dress made from floaty navy chiffon. It will make a nice addition to my nautical spring wardrobe, if I can just make myself finish it. The challenge of this pattern is that it was designed in an awful crushed velvet, so I've had to make a few tweaks here and there to create the dress in chiffon. Once I hand stitch the hem and insert elastic at the waist, it will be ready to wear with a sweet slip.
Currently dreaming about...turbans!

Follow the links above to see more vintage goodness. I really love catparty's interpretation of the 1940's 'housewife' turban. Oh how I long for a proper topper! So perfect for keeping hair out of your eyes while sewing-- or while working on airplanes ;)
