Me-Made-May Day 29 - 50's Housewife

5.29.2013

No Heather, don't burn that Milly Silk!!!!!  Haa haa, just kidding everyone, I'm a wine drinker. 

I made this dress in 2009 before having my kid and gaining a bunch of weight gestating his hungry hungry fetus. (His fetus nick name was Sir Snacks because he always wanted MOAR FOOD.)
Couldn't fit into it for a few years but weight loss at the end of last year and Me-Made-May challenge got me to try it back on.  I could zip it up but it was visibly too tight in the skirt area.  But hey, it's got big fat seam allowances so why not make the side seams and CB all 1/4" and see how that works.  It worked great!  Thanks Me-Made-May.

It looks like the Burda site has not uploaded any of their patterns before 2010, which is a shame because this is a great dress.  It's from issue May 2009, pattern #117 if you happen to have a Burda stash or score one off of ebay.

Now excuse me, it's time for my steam iron facial. Hissssssss

  2. I'm a wine drinker too (with a Margarita thrown in from time to time). You look much happier then I ever do ironing. Very pretty dress and I think I need to hire you to go fabric shopping for me since you always find the best prints. Only two more days of MMM silliness left :(
