Sunday walks in the countryside

We took a Sunday walk to the new observation tower near our town. There’s a hot debate regarding its design, usefulness, and construction costs raging here, but we’ll leave the local affairs out of this blog post. I actually quite like the light wooden lattices on its walls, and think it’s a fitting piece of architecture for the surrounding vineyards.

We took this opportunity to snap a few pictures of my newest sewing project. It’s Burda 04/2019 No. 108A in a cute dotted jersey I found on sale at the fabric store in Neu-Ulm. I had actually hoped to make this retro dress (Burda 02/2019 No. 106), but unfortunately there wasn’t enough fabric left.

This was a quick, easy project. I finished it in an afternoon. I will note that I cut the pattern in size 40, but in hindsight I should’ve sized down. It’s supposed to be a loose-fitting shirt, yes, but it borders on tent-like. 😀 Especially the sleeves turned out a lot longer than in the magazine spread. I might shorten them, but then again I’ll probably wear it in early autumn when I might be pleased about more coverage …
