Octopuses



Whooohooo, 3 posts in a row! :D
Found this supercute fabric 'Giant Octopi' by Heather Ross. Do you recognize the pattern I used?

It is the dress on the cover of BurdaStyle (08/12). Their mint version is just wonderful!

I really love cap sleeves and cloth that emphasize the waist! As I have far too many dresses (cannot catch up wearing them) I opted for a shorter shirt version.

Hopefully, this shirt turns out wearable. Could be a little tooooo cute?!

Have a lovely day everybody!

  4. Great idea to shorten it for a peplum top. I am a fan of the look. I love to scour my dress patterns to see what kind of great tops I could make from them.
