When Sewaholic released the Oakridge Blouse and the Granville Shirt in rapid succession back in 2015, I immediately gravitated toward the Granville. I’ve made it 5 times now (see here, here, here, here, and here) and have plans for at least 2 more. The Oakridge also seemed interesting, but it sat on the back burner. Finally, almost 2 years later I’ve gotten around to making it.
Back in May two of my good friends from college got married. I knew I wanted to make a dress for the occasion, and the dress code was black tie optional. This make required some serious thought (and investment), so I went to my local fabric shop, Mulberry Silks for inspiration. I was only looking for ideas (silouette, color, fabric type), but walked out with the Burda 6994 pattern and 4 yards of a gorgeous Vera Wang sateen. Fortunately they have a student discount!
