Burda #121 For the Thanksgiving Holiday

Normally we don’t travel over Thanksgiving, but this year we’ll be with John’s family in Bucks County and we also have en engagement party that weekend for a cousin of mine. Its an afternoon event so no need for a cocktail dress. That part of Pennsylvania is really beautiful and it will be great place to spend the holiday. So up right now it Burda #121 from the 12/2008 issue. Believe it or not, I found at nice stretch poly brown & blue plaid at Jo-Ann’s (!) that is just what I was looking for. The fabric coordinates with my Michael Kors pumps and I’ll add some textured hose in dark brown too. Last weekend I made a muslin and I should be able whip this together pretty fast. I like the bias layout in Burda’s original so I’ll use that for this plaid.
