|My wedding dress in silk crepe back satin.|
In case you're wondering what I ended up wearing under there: Va bien backless plunge bra (it has shoulder straps) and Va bien control top shorts. I ordered the shorts on a whim thinking they'd hide panty lines, and honestly didn't think they'd make a difference otherwise (not to brag but just a statement of fact - I don't really have much extra skin around the middle), but they did. Seriously, wearing the right undergarment is all about letting the fabric skim your frame and not get cling on your skin or catch in strange ways. It was the difference sleek and well, not so sleek.
I am still sewing, but I realize my life has changed since I started this blog and I can't keep up on all the blogs I like to read as well as keep track of my sewing projects. It's unfortunate because I sometimes I'm about to sew something and wonder whether I've already made it in the past, or wonder what I altered the last time I sewed it or something similar. Blogging and keeping records is helpful.
A note for Mairead: I'm sorry, I'm not selling my Burdas at the moment. I've often had good luck looking on etsy and eBay for past issues, and I hope you will as well!
