On this weekend we travelled out to Potsdam to the Schloss Glienicke. It is certainly a sweet, modest little palace. This ultimately sets it apart from many of the other palaces in the Berlin-Brandenburg area. We found plenty of locations for photos and spent a pleasant morning wandering through the gardens.
The pattern for the top was created by the Burdastyle member Seagle. She named the pattern Port Elisabeth and I just love the shape of it. I shortened the hem of the top and added this detail at the front. The pink/gold fabric was purchased at the markets with the vision of utilising it for the Port Elisabeth pattern.
Have you ever had a problem with finding the perfect fabric for the outfit that you have in mind? Well this is a constant problem for me. Finding fabric in Germany is quite difficult....and yes, I am aware that in Aus we have a good selection, so my high expectations have hindered my ability to select material. For this outfit I couldn't shake the thought of baby blue. So after visiting numerous markets I was told by a friend to visit Berger Stoffe. This was a great recommendation. I found the right fabric...plus a little more:) So I drafted this high waisted skirt pattern and made this baby blue skirt with a striped detail at the hem. I think that it turned out quite well
