New Dress Design...

I had a few spare hours in the studio yesterday and decided to use up this blue knit fabric I've had for a while.
I drafted a simple pattern with raglan style sleeves and a pussy bow neckline. I decided to use two darts either side of the waist to bring it in a bit.

Pattern ready for cutting...



Raglan sleeve...


Darts marked...


Pinned...


Sewn...


It turned out ok...




I wore it with my great aunt's marcasite brooch.


So, this style is now available from the shop!
