So, what happened was that I drove straight to Antwerp from Brussels and got stuck into work the minute I walked into my hotel room. And then forgot to move my hire car ... so when, two hours later, I rushed out the door in a blind panic, I had no intention of ending up in the local haberdashery, buying the May edition of Burda. It honestly was a complete mistake! Really!
(OK, I fib. I did check whether there was a Veritas near my hotel ... and felt very dumb for not realising it was less than a 10-minute walk(!) ... but then I did remember the car and decided it was a 2-birds-one-stone situation).
Isn't it just gorgeous???
So, ANYWAY. I bought Burda May 2011 (which I was dangerously close to missing, as it turns out the June edition is just about to be released) and had a quick flick through. At which point I also bought (more) tracing paper and (another) tape measure so that I could trace the lovely PINK 107 while on my lonesome in my hotel room.
I really will have to fight hard with myself NOT to go out and buy exactly this lovely hot pink fabric to make an exact replica of the dress. :)
So ... depending on how moody I'm feeling tomorrow, I'll take some body measurements and retrace the pattern in my size. And then I might just get down to doing an FBA. Holy crap!
