I caught the Burda WOF bug and decided to trace out some patterns I liked from the May 2009 issue. Here’s what I’m working on:
Dress 103B. Pure hotness!
Dress 117B. I love the fabric!
Blouse 110 and Trousers 111. Looks cool and casual.
Okay there’s really no reason to post all these tracing pictures, but I just wanted to show off my cute pattern weights. 🙂 **Idea courtesy of Faye.**
When I first heard of BWOF patterns, I balked at the idea of tracing out my own patterns. It just seemed like too much work. But once you sit down and determine what you want to trace, and you develop a good system, you can get on a good roll. It really isn’t that much more work than separating several traditional tissue sheets, finding the pieces you need, and cutting them out. In a way, tracing my patterns makes me feel a little more in control.
That’s really it for me. I don’t have any fabric for these patterns yet, but both dress patterns are traced, and now I’m working on the Blouse 110. Since I have so many patterns already, I don’t feel the need to go out and buy a bunch more (unless I really want it) when I have tons to choose from in BWOF. And also, it’s an attempt to get the most for my $$$.
