...Here I Come!
I'm about to make my first foray into the Burda World of Fashion. It's not a death-defying leap from a rocky cliff into crashing seas below, but rather a toe-dipping, ease your way in kind of entry.
I'll be making pattern 139 from the April, 2008 issue, the ruffled pants being worn by the little girl in the middle. Cute, aren't they? As my model lives a little over 2100 miles away, I'm going to have to rely on measuring the pattern pieces in order to make sure I've selected the correct size. Depending on how the pants turn out, I may make the tunic as well. (Unfortunately, the cute tunic is hidden under her sweater. Unless you happen to have the magazine, you'll have to trust me that it's very sweet.)
I'll be making the pants out of a white linen blend; her mother says she doesn't mind ironing and, since I don't mind ironing either, I believe her. I'll have to purchase something for the tunic if I decide to make it, too.
Wish me luck, I'm going to trace the pattern tonight!
