It was lying about with all the hems unfinished, so I spent 20 minutes or so finishing it off and I was able to wear it for a dinner with the family on a rather cool evening.
It is made from some gorgeous fabric that I bought from Knitwit. I had too much for a top, so knew it had to be a dress, but I couldn’t decide what sort of dress; this pattern turned out to be perfect.
I really like this pattern and have made one more dress from it – to be revealed when I am in colder climes. It has a bit of a 1960s feel, sort of a tent/swing dress, without being too full. The split top raglan sleeves form a dart at the shoulder, which is what gives it the nice shoulder shaping. The raglan sleeves are also really comfortable.
This dress will be perfect for autumn, but in the meantime I shall be wearing it whenever we have a cool evening.
