Well it took a bit of deciding and a lot of umming and arring!
Finally decided on a dress, and it just so happens I have the pattern already.
It's from a Burda World of Fashion magazine. For those kiwis who haven't discovered them yet, they really are rather cool! You have to trace the patterns from the magazine, but you get so many in each mag, it's worth it!
Although I did spend 2hours tracing my dress out this afternoon, and gouged my index finger with the tracing wheel. OUCH
So the dress is #138, from BWOF 12-2009.
I'm unsure about the sleeves, so I think I will merge a sleeveless armhole onto this and make it sleeveless.
It has a lining, and I'm seriously considering going with something really quite different for the lining.
I do love the idea of having something funky hidden away, like in my jeans, I love the pocket linings to be something cool.
So many choices! I'm looking forward to making a version of this dress from Calico, to check fitting issues. So I can get them worked out before the contest starts.
