Obi Belt BurdaWOF 06-2009-151

When I made my Navy Blue wrap dress, I decided it really needed a belt so I sourced some leather (Nappa leather) from eBay and purchased a roller foot for my Bernina ($$$) and tried out Burda wof 06-2009-151 the Obi Belt. I have wanted to make this since I saw it in the magazine and a few good versions have been made in blog land so I decided it was now my turn.


I am not going to review it, as a couple of good reviews are already out there. I basically followed Dawn's review and made similar alterations.

More piccies....


Interesting this dress gaped last time I wore it - not so bad for this photo shoot as I had the sooper-dooper brassiere on - you know the one girls...


The back view...

Lots of posts will be coming in one on top of the other after this posting drought, as even though it doesn't look like it, sewing has been happening, but what hasn't been happening is the photography sessions. So we had a big-un this afternoon and I have a lot to show you.

  5. I have always liked that pattern. Yours turned out really nice, and has inspired me to re-think making one again.
