I’ve been looking for patterns to start with and this one from Burda seems to have everything I want. http://osinka.ru/Zhurnaly/2009/burda/burda_12/slides/22.html
Here’s the line drawing:
Flap thing over zipper: Check
Designed for puffy fabric: Check
The princess seams and the knit band around the inside wrist are an added bonus. I would need to significantly lengthen this though. I’m not sure I like those pockets…they might need to get changed out to some in the princess seam with a the flap thing on the outside kind of like a welt.
I need to look through my back issues of Burda to see if I have this one or not. It’s from December 2009. I can order from the burda.de site though if I need to.
Before I get too involved in this, I’m going to make a little nightie for a contest at a local fabric store. The theme is lingerie and I’m going to use a deep plum/purple with black lace. I plan to make a sample up first though since I’m using a new to me pattern company. More to come on that later!
