What Daughter Chose

Looking through two summers' worth of Burdas, daughter EM has asked for the following. We bought some white chiffon and champagne charmeuse for the little halter top and white cotton serge for the jacket below. We never found the suitable wide silk cloqué for the dress.
Anyway, I used the halter top as an opportunity to teach her how to trace and add the seam margins.

  2. Is your daughter learning to sew?
    The fabric choices sound a bit lux, and why not? Nice to make things just a touch more decadent when you are making them for yourself.

  5. Very clever of you to teach her to trace and add seam margins ... she will be at the sewing machine next.

  6. Warning: the halter camisole back is designed to be 5 cm shorter than the front. If you don't like this design feature, adapt before cutting the fabric!
