my new Burda (February 2012 117b) colour block dress? Well 98 per cent thrilled. The colour combination gives me cheer on a winter's day and the use of a slightly heavier, firmer black ponti at the waist has a corseting effect that makes me happy. I'm also happy with the 'trans-seasonal value' of this dress through adding a black spencer underneath.
Where does two per cent dissatisfaction come from I hear you ask. Simple, I forgot to make my usual 1 cm sway back adjustment. Big mistake on a garment that has a huge zip at centre back, creating a bump that too closely resembles a roll of fat! So provided I stand with my back to the wall, I just love this dress.
PS I'm not sure I could ride a bike in it. It is well ...figure conscious. Hoping that there will be less of me to cling to come summer.
I'm working on a new skirt and blouse set which I hope to show you all soon.
Meanwhile, happy sewing!
