Burgundy velvet
I thought I would have more things to post about at the begin of the year but truth be told, I am quite occupied by a very exciting project of mine that leaves me little time for sewing, or at least sewing for myself (I hope to tell you more as soon as possible…). But fortunately, I was able to find some time to make this nice little dress last week.

I found this amazing burgundy velvet during sales at Julían López and I could not resist. I have been quite drawn to burgundy, maroon and plum colours lately. And what can I say, the price was ridiculously low.

The pattern is Retro Butterick 6582 (already made here), view B, with a modified collar. I wanted something very simple to let the fabric shine. There are double darts, meaning four front darts and four back darts, no waist seam, a back vent, very basic. I lined the whole dress for more comfort.

We had a lot of fun taking pictures with our new camera lens (50mm, f/1,8 G). It’s amazing and makes great pictures. Believe me or not, I did not touch anything on those photos. The light is crazy beautiful and it wasn’t even that sunny today. Best Christmas gift ever!

I wish you all a nice week.

Oh si, tienen telas super baratas ahora mismo. Me gusta la fotografía pero de momento, no sé mucho, voy aprendiendo. Y con este nuevo objetivo, estoy muy contenta.

Thanks Molly. That lens is so amazing and it's going to make my job so easy if I can post pictures just as they are…

What a beautiful dress, and the colour really suits you.

Pauline 21 January, 2013 - 7:39 am

Thank you very much.

So chic! You look like a movie star!

Pauline 21 January, 2013 - 7:35 am

Thank you! I can only give credit to the new lens.

Merche Martinez 20 January, 2013 - 11:11 pm

Que fotos mas chulas! Bueno y el vestido ni te cuento… Estás guapisima y tienes toda la razón, cuando la tela es tan bonita no hay que agobiarla con un diseño demasiado complicado.
Un beso y que todos tus proyectos salgan perfectos!

Pauline 21 January, 2013 - 7:34 am

Gracias Merche. No había hecho nada desde antes de las navidades y hechaba de menos a mi maquina… un abrazo

onlylola 21 January, 2013 - 9:24 am

Me encanta el vestido!Lo que más admiro de ti es la capacidad para combinar colores de una forma tan elegante! tienes un don especial! un besito

Pauline 21 January, 2013 - 2:55 pm

¡Muchísimas gracias por estas palabras tan bonitas!

Sonia Fonseca 21 January, 2013 - 10:18 am

Pauline, como siempre vas monisima!!. La tela es muy bonita y pienso como tu y las demas compis… has elegido un modelo sencillo, ya que la tela habla ella sola, no necesita de nada más!!. Y tu nuevo objetivo sera muy bueno y sacará fotos chulisimas, pero ya te digo yo, que con objetivo de 50mm o sin el, tu siempre estas guapisima!!!.

Guapa!!
Besitos

Pauline 21 January, 2013 - 2:57 pm

Gracias Sonia. Tengo que decir que el fotógrafo tiene mucho mérito (más que el objetivo o la modelo). Un besito

Gracias. Los guantes son el regalo de Navidad de mi madre y la verdad es que estoy encantada (son bonitos y calentitos).
