This is another of my practical makes. I like to travel abroad in long dresses and I needed a winter version. This is also a dress to quickly put on to go outside for some short errand. I expect to wear it a lot.
The fabric is simply gorgeous: organic black intelock. Soft, great drape, heavy, great colour and a very good price, I totally recommend it.
I used my "Universal T-shirt" pattern, very similar to the Frankie pattern in Tilly's book. I wanted to try that one out, but why change things if they are perfect? And this pattern IS perfect for me. So, here we go for the hundredth time.
Since the fabric is Dutch, my recent trip to Amsterdam was a perfect excuse to model it.
Next morning we went to Nieuwe Hoogstraat, where there are a bunch of wonderful fabric and yarn shops.
I bought a future wool/cashmere jacket for only 63 Euros. A bargain. I could have bought lots and lots, but I am saving money to buy a new car and I am being a good girl sewing from my little stash. :-)
