Billie Jean Show & Tell.....

Billie Jean by Heather

Lately i have been stumbling across more and more Billie Jean's out in the blogoshere, with  more popping up all over the place everyday...It is so much fun for me to see everyone individual  take on the pattern, and transforming the pattern to a whole other level with ideas that havent even occurred to me!  I'm just a little bit proud of you gals.... Clever bunch

So with out further ado, here is another stunning Billie Jean i spotted out in the wild!

Check out Heather from her blog: handmadebyheather , and her version of Billie Jean!
I cant help myself... i am green with envy...

She has done such a lovely job with dress 2 of the Billie Jean pattern, i absolutely love the green polka dot fabric she has chosen and definitely think Billie Jean not only loves Hawaiian print fabric, but polka dots as well!

Green with envy

I love that Heather chose to make dress 2 of the Billie Jean pattern, but changed  the full gathered skirt to a 4 panel  gored skirt, showing the versatility of the pattern and it looks gorgeous! The gored skirt sits so lovely and still has enough twirling factor.

Heather also made some adjustments to the neckline for more of a 'hiding of the  bra straps' wearing  Billie Jean, which still totally doesn't deter at all from the flattering neckline design and is easy to do. I have a tutorial/advice coming up for the neckline design, so stay tuned.

She also installed an invisible zipper instead of a lapped zipper, as per the pattern instructions. Tutorial coming up on this as well.

Head on over to Heathers blog, and have a squizz at all of the other amazing things she has made.... Oh and she is hilarious as well so you'll be in for a bit of a giggle!

Also if you are after a bit more of an in depth review of the Billie Jean  pattern, check out Heather's review/take on Pattern Review , where she gets into the nitty gritty of the pattern. ( FYI this review is no way paid etc by me -  its a totally freewill review! )
