indeed you need much patience for drafting without being able to read anything, but thereīs alway someone who can help you in some way, i think. itīs worth a try :) i truly AM intermediate - you donīt know that i needed four muslin sleeves to get it right... or how much swearing was involved! donīt tell anybody... ;) tini: i still have some curtains left *grin*

Wow! This is very impressive. I have a few of these books but been too intimidated to try. You didn't exactly pick the easiest project to start with either. This looks truly fabulous, and I bet it looks even better with a sequined fish purse :-)...

Holy cow! I can't believe you call yourself an intermediate. Lady, you are at least advanced the way you pulled this off. I could never wear it but on the right person it would be stunning. You should post a picture of you wearing it.

Wow! This looks stunning. You seem so calm about the process of drafting a pattern from minimal information and working on something in a language you don't speak, for a complicated project involving something unusual using a lot of fabric ...... I think you are a sewing risk-taker. All power to you. (Does that translate into German?!?). You inspire me to take a few more risks. And ah - I recognise that fabric now! I have quite a few Ikea fabrics that I don't intend to use for home furnishings - they have very firm structure in mostly natural fibres and I like that. I have a multi-fabric jacket pattern that I am intending to make up using them, and one of them is not unlike the one you used. I bet you get many comments on that outfit when you wear it. Give us some more reviews!!

I love it. It has so much style. Your hard work was well worth it.

It's fabulous. Yes, my first thought was Judy Jetson in haute couture. We won't tell anyone your inspiration fabric came from curtains because we understand. Cheers to your sense of adventure.

thank you all so much :) itīs really fun to draft a pattern - i never thought that this would be something for me! gigi, i remember you posted in the sw-thread *hi!* :) *whisper* the fabric is originally a curtain, i bought it really cheap at IKEA. so you see what happens when i see fabric - no matter what ;)

I saw your gorgeous outfit when you posted a link on SW recently - I have not forgotten it. It is breathtaking!

Wow! That is super! I really admire you did that without a pattern! Excellent work and it looks really fun!

This is truly stunning with a definite 1950s vibe with the collar and the flared skirt. I'd love to see this on you!
