Bridget Bardot Wannabe :)

Hahahaha, how I wish ! Well, take off 20 years, blond hair and blue contacts, might just see the resemblance :) The pattern is from Burda 6/2011 pattern 124. Its a simple peasant style blouse with 3/4 sleeves, gathered neckline, sleeve and hems. 

Do we look like those mom and daughter shots from the Japanese pattern books ? When I found these 2 checked voile cotton fabrics at a stall I knew I had to make matching outfits and I kept the pink for ME! And yup, we were both wearing white pants walking about town hehehe.

I bound the edges with ready made blue tartan cotton bias and added a 3 inch band at the waist so I could wear the blouse on top like that. Really happy how it turned out, true to size.

Doesn't the model look fab ? * sigh*

Whats that ? Its my little strawberry bush in my backyard :) Only managed to get 5 ripe ones and they were instantly gobbled by the 'girl' , she's a strawberry fanatic that one ! When the plant first started sprouting in march I thought they were weeds! Phew lucky I didn't dig it up. Hopefully more will ripen soon before all this rain destroys them.

So, thats the last of my Summer sewing folks, so baju raya siap dah ? I have little Danny's shirt left and some hemming , feeling lethargic today, must be this depressing weather :(

    Now you have inspired me! I have always thought of making mother daughter's dresses from my Japanese pattern books but didn't get to it until I saw your creations. You look good in your new creation..the colour suits you! You should sew more for yourself.
