One shoulder shirt

I have been getting this e-mail newsletter from Burda Style. It has some great patterns and projects some for free and some you have to pay a small fee. This week I saw so many patterns I wanted to try and of course non of them were for free. (I want to try the one in the top left corner). So I thought I would try to figure 1 out on my own and save my money for the more complicated one. After you pay for the pattern, paper and ink it becomes quiet expensive. The fee it self is not much.

So my version came out pretty close, it did take me a little longer than if I had bought the pattern, just figuring out how to peace it together and I had to use the seam ripper a few times. But I wore it tonight and loved it. Maybe just a tad longer next time.



the ruffle is just rolled up, I didn't catch it before my self photo session. (boy that needs work)

It looks great on you. Just think of how many times they test and re-test their patterns, and you made that without one. Awesome!

It's a pretty pink! I love it. Some of the styles in Burdastyle you can figure it out on yourself, but some are difficult that it is worth paying for. You did great!
