For some reason I felt like sewing last night. Normally I'm too tired. I picked up this pattern, Burda 9580 at Spotlight when I was looking for something to spend a $10 voucher on. It looked quick and easy, no zips or button which is always a plus in my book.
I love little pop over tops/dresses like this. They are so cute over leggings and a long or short sleeve top, or by themselves when its hot.
I'm a big believer in the saying "leggings aren't pants".
Whether you are four or forty, in my opinion, there is no need to see any further up than mid thigh when wearing leggings.
I vaguely remember Mum saying to steer clear of Burda patterns. I can't say it was the most enjoyable of sewing experiences but it worked out OK in the end. Other pattern brands seem to be more consistent and explicit.
My customer was thrilled and has ordered several more in various colours. She liked waking up to a new dress hanging on her bedroom door.
