Wadder and a Big Thanks

Burda 4/2010 #102 is a very cute blouse, if you pick the right fabric. I did not pick the right fabric, a solid would be best. 

this is what I chose from only in red and white.  Not a good choice, looked like an old house dress my grandmother would have worn!  So it is gone, out-of-sight and onto the next project.  A skirt for Kaitlyn.

I want to thank all of you for your comments here and on Pattern Review for Meredith's dress.  She is thrilled with the feedback and when I told her she had 25 comments on the review, her smile was huge.  So from this very appreciative mom, THANK YOU, the blogging community is wonderful.  She has plans for a sleeveless cardigan and a top, too.  So you will be seeing more reviews from her.


  1. I didn't have time to comment on the dress yesterday, but thought it was perfect for her too. Shame about your blouse - thanks for the tip.

  2. I get so intrigued by some Burda patterns, I don't put enough thought into my fabric choices. That's a really cute blouse pattern. You should make it again. It's already traced and ready to go!

  3. Your DDs dress is totally cute. She is taking after her mom. Nice work!

  4. Oh no! Sorry about the wadder! Sometimes it's so hard to imagine what the garment will look like with the chosen fabric.
