The “So Darling” dress from Burda is finally done! This was my first Burda pattern, but I got it from the Burda Style magazine so I didn’t have to print it out. I’m not sure how the instructions for their downloadable patterns are, but the ones from the magazine are fairly vague- most likely because they have to cram pieces from 20 different patterns onto four pattern sheets and the instructions for 40 different patterns have to fit onto the limited pages of the magazine. This means that the sewer will have to connect a LOT of unclear dots, so I would not recommend the magazine patterns to a beginner seamstress at all. If you have experience sewing, you might be a little stumped at times (I certainly was), but eventually you will be able to figure it out. I made a size EU 34 (which equates to about size US 2 I believe) and it was huge in the waist, but the bust/armholes/shoulders fit great. So I just took the side seams in at the bodice and the top of the skirt and the fit turned out great. The lining was a pain in my ass. I hate linings, but they were necessary because of the scratchy stay tape I used at the arms and necklines.

Hair: Magnetic rollers, Laila Ali hairdryer, Lotta Body Setting Lotion, blood/sweat/tears of Jasika rolling her hair by herself in a tiny, cramped bathroom, with a small handheld mirror propped up on the towel holder so she can see the back of her head

Makeup: Shit from the vanity applied by Jasika, no blood or tears, but a little sweat
Photographer: The beautiful and talented Claire J. Savage and an iPhone and some lovely sunlight

Dress: Pattern by Burda, sewn by Jasika

*this is the outfit I would wear to a Mad Men audition, if Mad Men had any more auditions for people like me*

BUTCH: Not Like the Other Girls is a photo-based public art exhibition being displayed in transit shelters throughout Vancouver from March 11 2013 onwards. A gallery of the exhibition was also be on display at The Cultch.

The exhibition is an exploration of female masculinity in contemporary communities. The images celebrate and honour the beauty and power of those who transgress the gender binary. S.D. Holman conceptualizes Butch, “not as oppositional too Femme and Trans identities, but as an inclusive site of resistance to limitations on the way women, gender and sexuality are still defined” (sdholman.com).

The images aim to provide an alternative representation of what it means to be female outside the culture’s narrow vision of femininity. The images serve as a mirror to those who are not represented in mainstream ideas about what it means to be a woman. They also aim to reach an audience that has little to no exposure to or understanding of Butch identities. .

fuck yeah Vancouver

This is so fantastic and so needed. Seeing imagery of women like me makes me feel validated and not wrong in my butch body. I love this campaign and the celebration of different ways of being a woman.

Interesting. Gonna learn more about the installation.
