They now have a fresh batch of scarfs and hats for you to choose from.
The museum is also a great place to visit this time of the year. Lots to look at and lots to see!

Easter dress, Burda 6796

What a nice warm, busy weekend.
I got really distracted last week while cutting lining for sun hats by  a raspberry red linen!
So started a unplanned easter dress.
I have been thinking of making her a dress after seeing this dress.
As it was last minute I did not have time to look for a new pattern or go and buy fabric. So if you look closely one side of the dress is grey linen and the other has a mix of beige linen.
 The pattern is Burda 6796. In stead of a contrasting color band at the bottom, I did the triangles.
I measured , traced and cut the triangles, the sewing was challenging , but I got better towards the end.

The best part was that she loved it!
