I've started sewing the cover dress from the latest burda mag as I got some very nice semi-stretchy aqua material for $4 from the oppy. I'm adopting my sis's approach - one step at a time - so i don't loose momentum. Step 1 is deciding what dress, what material and deciphering the burda patterns. TICK! I didn't get any good photos of the floods up this way because I work pretty far from my house but Boston and I got this shot of the Wimmera River on our morning walk when it was at it's peak last week... it just kinda looks like water though!
