Until now you should be used to see different versions of the same pattern from me. This is the second attempt at Burda 6991 (meanwhile there is even a third one 🙂 ). As always I used the smallest size a 34 (which is actually a 36 printed at 90%). I had to take the waist in, so I lost about 10 cm of the circumference. I guess I don’t have to mention, that I shortened the legs as well.
The fabric is something synthetic that has a white sleek inside and a navy velvety outside with little white crosses. As most of my fabrics I purchased it for 2€/m at the fabric market at Maybachufer here in Berlin. Well, not exactly at the market… but in front of a bakery some metres down the street, that sells fabrics in front of their store on saturdays.
As you can see, I like to combine it with a simple striped top (some of the few things I regularly wear, but that’s not made by me) Perfect for a weekend trip to the lake…
… and even longer trips (This is the Uyuni Salt lake in Bolivia)
I photographed some more makes when I was on vacation in South America last year. I just have to find some time to put them up here.
I had to “skip” MeMadeMay this year. I fullfilled my vow to wear a different me-made garment each day. But that’s what I do anyway almost the whole year around. The biggest challenge, but also the thing that MMM is about for me, is to take a picture of my outfit everyday. I hope I can take part again next year. But first I have to blog more than 20 garments I made but didn’t document here yet.
Thank you for your patience (again 🙂 )
