sewing sewing sewing!!!

I've been quite busy sewing lately.
I've also uploaded two of my projects on name is lalla74,please go check it.
I've used a retro Butterick pattern B5032  and lowered the neck line to "give more air"

for the first one I used a beautiful african fabric a friend gave me an year ago or so..

This is the pattern I used, but I guess it is no longer available on the Butterick website.

I'm very pleased how it turned out.
So I decided to use the same pattern for another dress...
This time a spring,summer look....
I used a striped  shirting cotton (it is more clear on the detailed photoes), but I guess it was a bit too lightweight fo this project. Is is also creased (gosh I didn't iron it....rrrrr)

 For this second one, I have tried to be a bit more precise with the finishing..


...and with ribbons.

there's a new one I'm working at..

Off I go! Today is very warm and sunny here in Milan!!  :)

 see You soon.
xx Laura
