Painting cows. There is something beautiful about the animal, something peaceful about seeing them grazing in large open fields. This leads me to have fallen in love with a photo taken in the UK of 3 Dairy Shorthorn cows grazing on the Robinson farm. I learned that son, Jason Robinson, took this picture one day on his farm, and they were very happy that I wanted to paint the cows on their farm.
Around the middle of July, I purchased a pattern from BurdaStyle.com. The Island Placket Maxi Dress. My daughter, Sarah, had asked me if I would make her this dress after looking through a hundred patterns for various maxi dresses.
I had never made a dress using Burda patterns, but I was up for the challenge. It was a beautiful dress pattern.
This is a first for me - working with a Burda Pattern, but hopefully it won't be as difficult as it looks. My daughter, Sarah, found a summer maxi dress on burdastyle.com and asked me if I would make it for her. I love making clothes for Sarah, and thought it would be fun to tackle this Burda pattern. I've always been game for trying new things and new challenges. The pattern claims to be "Advanced" but we'll see how difficult it is once I dig in.
